Sunday was my last long run before the New Orleans Rock ní Roll Half Marathon. I ended with 8.2 miles in 1:35. I made myself run at my slow comfortable pace so I am happy with my time. The run was beautiful because I was able to go to White Rock Lake (my favorite place in Dallas) and then meet up with my kiddos and husband afterwards. After the cold temperatures we had during the previous week, Sunday was BEAUTIFUL.
I am really looking forward to the New Orleans half. Even though there is a 40% chance of rain on race day right now, I am going to enjoy seeing a city I have never been to and hanging out with a longtime friend of mine who is also running. I have set my goal to run the race in less than 2:30 but I am not sure if I am going to be able to pull that off because of the warmer & more humid temperatures. I do know that I am going to have fun. Afterall, what better way to see a city than to run through it!?
