I had to go out of town yesterday so I didn't get to run. Today I took it pretty easy and ran 4.2 miles with two 1/2 mile sections where I ran at 7:15 pace. Overall pace was 8:42.
Tomorrow is the Chose Marathon for Adoption. I am running the Half and hoping to beat my 1:35:55 time from last year. Last year the temperature was 42 degrees, this year is is supposed to be 48 so the conditions should be good. I feel like I am in better shape this year but I'm a little unsure based on my training times and efforts. This will be a good assesment going into my real marathon training in a couple of weeks. Next year I might try and be ready so I can run the full marathon instead of the half.
They had 1,000 runners last year in the half marathon. I won 1st in my age catagory, out of 40, so it wasn't that competative. Maybe it will be more competative this year. The course is really nice as it runs along the Guadalupe river most of the way. This will be a fun race!
He has told you, O man, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness, and to walk humbly with your God?
