It’s official. I registered for a half this fall. I am doing the Scenic Byway Half Marathon in Belle Plaine, MN on October 11th. I am really excited to have a half on my schedule this fall. I am even more excited about training. I didn’t really train very well for either of my 2 previous half marathons, so I want to really commit to this one and get a PR.
My last half my time was 2:50:41…so I am going to set a BIG goal right now and say I would LOVE to finish this half in 2:30 or less. But I would totally be happy with anything less than 2:40. A 2:30 would keep me at around 11 minute miles. Which would be much faster than any of my other races…or runs for that matter. But I think if I fully commit to my training and, really what else would I rather be doing this summer than be outside running…I think that a goal of 2:30 is so very doable. I am trying to talk a friend into doing it with me….but we’ll see how that goes!
