A race in 3 days...

I just signed up for a half three days. What was I thinking...13.1 miles is a long way. I haven't been training much since my last half marathon at the beginning of June. So I have a secret goal for this race. It is to run fast for this half than the last half. That might not be the best idea I have had but that's my goal. I would love to run sub 1:40 but I think that might be pushing it too much. My plan is to start with the 1:45 pacer and see how I feel. If I am feeling good, I can always speed up or I could slow down but I am not going to think of that as an option yet.

I got a package in the mail this week.

It was from Erica over at I Run Because...I Can. She had a GU giveaway and I won! I am super excited to try out all the different flavors. Thanks Erica! This is going to come in handy for my upcoming race.


  1. Hi Julie,
    Are you running in the Red White and Boom? I am running in that half marathon on Sunday. If that is the half you are running in maybe I will see you there:) You will be finishing way before me speedy girl!

  2. Hi Julie,

    Yes, that is the half that I am running. Hopefully, I see you there. That would be fun! I hope to be finishing in that time but I haven't been running that much lately. Good luck in the race!
