13.1 Here I Come...

I am so very thankful for God's goodness in allowing me to still be able to run the half-marathon this Sunday. I am crazy excited about it.

I have been gathering information and came across something new they're doing at this marathon this year: Pace Groups.

This will be my first half. My first time running 13.1. It's supposed to be rainy and mid 60s. I am determined to finish this race.

So, I am playing with the idea of jumping in a pace group on race day. I am gearing toward the 10:30 pace group, not only because of the time (I don't want to start too fast and not be able to finish) but also because the pacer seems like a really neat person and very encouraging. I think it would be a unique experience to run with a variety of strangers for 2 hours...maybe better than a playlist.

This Sunday we are having a reunion. It seems like the three of us just ran The CRIM together.

So, this will be my last post until after race day...we'll see what happens.

Good luck - you will do great! I can't wait to hear about it! And, as for pace group - I hear its a great idea, but I wouldn't abandon your playlist, just in case.
