It has been 1 tough month away.....

Nothing too exciting - small vacations here and there. During and in between I have been training for my 1st half marathon of this season. We will be heading to Maine to run the half marathon distance at the Maine Marathon.
Training is going along, but this heat and humidity is making meeting paces difficult. I continue to push as much as I can. All I hope is that Maine temperatures will be cool and the air dry. We will see what happens.
I have managed to register for several other races - Starting in January I will start training for Big Sur Marathon - should be interesting, considering I have run a marathon with no formal training ... now I will train for this one seriously so I can make the 6 hour cut-off.
Races in my calendar so far: Maine, Lighthouse Loop, St. Augustine, Women's Half, HITS open triathlon, Celebration half marathon, and Big Sur.
On my radar: Mt. Dora, Palm Beaches, Ocala, 5 points of Life, and a hilly marathon for training purposes.
