This weekend my long run called for 13 miles. I’m getting a little bored with all of my usual running routes. I decided yesterday that instead of doing my long run today I will do the 13 miles tomorrow at the Monson Memorial Classic Half Marathon. Last year my husband and I ran the 5K at this race. It was my first 5K under 30 minutes. We were planning to do it again this year, but things changed a bit when I broke my rib. Also my husband hasn’t had much time to go running lately. Although last year he came in 9th with barely any preparation. Curse those long muscular soccer player legs! Honestly it was incredible. I wish I could have seen him finish, but I was quite a ways behind.
So we will be back tomorrow. I am excited about doing a long run in a different location. I am in no way concerned about time. The course is very hilly and I am not interested in an injury so I am planning to run at the pace I’ve been running and take it easy up the hills.
My best friend and her family lives in the town. I will run by their house at some point. Orlando and Carlos will have fun with them and then hopefully everyone will venture down town to watch me finish. Should be a really fun day and the forecast looks gorgeous.
Hope you’re having a great weekend.
