My Best Race Yet!!

In place of the Crazy Horse Half Marathon that was canceled October 6 due to the worst storm to hit SD ever, (see my last post for details),1184877_10151707424793170_1431197458_nI’m running the St. Louis Half Marathon next Sunday.  Hoping to run my best race yet.

Yesterday was my last long run.  I ran 9.4 miles in 2 hours.  Pretty good pace for me – for that many miles.  I am doing some core training along with running.  It really helps.  What would help a lot is if I could drop about 20 pounds.  Then I’d have to give up some favorite foods and such.  Hmmm…. Pace….food/wine…..

Anne's Taco'sWell, we’ll see.

I love running in 40 and 50 degree weather.  It’s the best.  Another reason why I hope this to be my PR.

I am going to run 3 days at 2 to 3 miles this week and then Saturday hit the Expo mid afternoon to get my bib #12614.  I’ll meet up with those members of my team that are running the race and then wait till my wave hears the start gun.

This was me in last years race – I ran the full marathon.

Last years St. Louis race brought 16,000 runners from 49 states.   That was my first marathon, and it took everything I had.

I can’t wait to get back there and because I’m running a shorter distance, I hope to set a PR.

I’ll let you know.

    Wow. Snow. That blows my mind living down here in Alabama and Georgia! Good luck in St. Louis. Go in expecting to come out a personal champ. It increases the odds that you do 😉
