Long Run Day...

Sunday, November 13, 2011

Waiting for sister-in-law to call do we can run out 12 miles today. I have never run that far and next week is the 13.1! I am getting excited. I think I really need to make sure I keep myself paced at the beginning and focused on finishing in no more than an 11 min mile pace. The goal is to run a full 6-7 miles without stopping...then see where we are and pace myself again from there.

I am now toying with the idea of actually going for that full marathon in May. If you think about it, I am half way there with this half marathon and I will probably never again want to do it. Then on top of that, 13.1 is a pretty cool sticker to have on your back window of your car, but that 26.2 is even cooler and more impressive. Silly way to think about it, but come on, there are much fewer people in the world that have a marathon under their belt! I also know that after the half, my running group is going to start up Saturday long runs and I will have the accountability if them. Love my sis but she just doesn't have the accountability I need.

Hope she calls me, bc I need to get it in before I waste a shower. LOL.

Have a great Sunday!

    Good luck with your goals, I think you can do it!! I think you'll find after this run there's just no way you can't do a full marathon =P

    Go you....
    if you don't try for something you will never achieve it....
    Look at the half marathon that is coming up....you have prepared for it and will achieve it....

    Maybe you just need to sign up for the one in May and start working towards it.....
