This Saturday I will be running in my 5th half marathon and newbie will be competing in his first. It is going to be a great day! I am excited and a big ball of nervous energy! My fuller work schedule will hopefully kick in this week as well, if it would just STOP raining...
So here is my Race Week plan:
Monday: Off, way too much to do today. Have a 9000 flyer (in bundles of 30!) for a summer tennis program to get out by tomorrow.
Tuesday: Run 6 miles
Wednesday: Run 5 miles
Thursday: Run 4 miles
Saturday: RACE DAY!
Sunday: Enjoy mothers day with my mom here in town!
Now... on to the giveaway! I will be scouting the Indy Mini Marathon Expo for 2 great prizes to the winners of this week's giveaway! (Probably a running extravaganaza of a prize: headbands, running aids, etc!)
1 prize will be given to the person who can guess MY race time! (Closest time wins.)
1 prize will be given to the person who can guess NEWBIE's Race time! (Closest time wins.)
So here is how you enter:
Become a follower of my blog and comment on this post with your guesses!
Now, I have a lot of Facebook friends out there who read this blog and have not become a follower! THIS IS THE TIME TO DO IT! A PRIZE COULD BE YOURS! (And I will throw in a bonus prize if you are a former or current tennis lesson, become a follower and win: a FREE 1/2 hour private!)
Now Some Things That May Help:My 10 miler was just under 1 hour 25 minutes.
Newbie's was just under 1 hour 45 minutes.
I have never gone over 2 hours in a half and am aiming for that elusive 1:50.
Newbie just wants to finish.
SO FOLLOW ME AND POST THOSE TIMES!
