Anyone who's read this blog for any length of time should know how ridiculous it still is to me that I have even run one half marathon, not to mention five. (Read recaps of all my races here.)
I'm trying not to put too much pressure on this race, but I also want to be honest and tell you that I am going for a specific time.
I really want to run a half marathon in under 2 hours.
I am technically training for a marathon right now, so this half isn't the end goal of my training. But I've heard more than a few stories from marathoners who ran their best half marathon during marathon training. I'm hoping I can be included in that group as well.
So wish me luck! Hopefully I'll be writing a recap post about how well the race went. But even if I don't, I'm going to be cheesy and say that in many ways I've already won. Running a half marathon was a huge goal of mine, and I've been successful in ways I never imagined.
So with that said, here's to number 5!
