It will be on 10-10-10 in Tyler, TX. Anyone else out there planning on doing this one? There is a 5K, half, and full. The best part is the medal. It has a rose as the medal part. Check out the website (click here) and look. Too cute. Full marathon participants get roses at the finish line. (I am a little bummed that the half participants don't get those too).
I think I might have a couple of friends semi-talked into going. My friend Jennifer and my friend Kathy are considering it, as well as my lunchtime running buddy, Donny. So, we'll see I guess. However, if anyone wants to fly in and needs an airport pickup and a hotel buddy, let me know. (ahem, Katye)
So, now I have tons of questions for you experienced half people out there.
- If I start my training next week, I should be completed with it about 3 weeks before the half. What do I do? Add some extra mileage in on those weeks? Keep increasing mileage? I am nervous about my longest run on the program being 10 miles before the real thing
- After you did your first half, how long did you wait for another? There is one really close to home four weeks later. Realistically, should I shoot for that one too?
- How long does a long run have to be before you bring along Gu or something like that?
I know I have more questions, but I can't remember them. Off to bed. Have a good night!
