Half marathon yes or no

Thursday, February 14, 2013

I did not get a real run in (other than a little jogging around the neighborhood with the dogs and the horse) because of my recent cold. I could try to go on a long run tomorrow if the weather is decent.
I'm trying to decide whether I really want to run the Half-marathon on March 2. I suspect if the weather is nice I'll feel like it, even without the prospect of running a personal best. If the weather is cold and wet I probably won't feel like it, kind of the same as for the long runs.
I think I'll wait and see how I feel closer to the date. Last year I ran in spite of having a cold and it went ok, just pretty slow. Either way I'll probably try to do a 10 mile long run whenever the weather is decent, not too cold, not too windy and not rainy.

    I'm sure you will be really please if you did. Also it will help with you satistics since you also take into account how you feel and the weather.

    I already paid for my 1/2, and with recent setbacks I know I am not going to be able to run it. I am still going to go, and just plan on run/walk intervals. For me, I don't thing running has to mean a PR, or anything spectacular. I think being out there doing it and being active is the point.
