Ready, Set, GO!

If you look over to the right of your screen, you'll notice the ticker for the half marathon.  That's right people;  it is the EVE of the half marathon! 

I'm done carb loading.  I've taken it easy today (this actually describes the past 3 days).  The troop is scheduled to leave at 5:45AM for downtown, for a 7:45AM start time for the walking crew.  The weather is predicted as cold (30's) but dry.  Since we've prepared by walking in rain, we are ready for whatever Mother Nature throws at us!  And the thought of a Dicks burger and fries waiting for me at the end will be enough of an incentive to push through anything!

Someone asked me today what my goal was for the event.  I know I want to finish closer to 3 hours... I think we finished the last one around 3:30.  I'd like to say that I will run 5 or 6 of the 13.1 miles and last time we ran 3 or 4 miles.  But I don't want to leave teammates behind and my running partner is injured.  And I left my watch at school so interval running is going to be hard to keep track of.  So, I guess we'll take it as it comes.  Rumor has it, the energy will be high and adrenaline will pumping and I'm eager to experience another challenge.

Ready, set, GO!
