Easy Interval day for this marathon week. Six 400's at this pace just doesn't seem like a workout, but I guess that's what it's supposed to feel like. My legs like to run at this pace, it actually feels like I'm floating along and not plodding along.

I'm Done!

Last run before the Ft Worth Cowtown Marathon on Sunday. The weather should be good at around 40 degrees, 80% Humidity and no chance of rain.

Here is the link to live race messaging if anyone is interested:

Ha ha, I packed all of my stuff last night and almost forgot my running shorts as they were in the dryer... At the last minute I remembered them :-)

My goal time for the race is 3:23 (7:45 pace). That's about a minute slower than my half marathon PR pace...surely I can do that! If I can run a 3:23 this will give me a BQ by 7 minutes and should place me in the top 5 in my age division.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love.
