I'm pretty excited about this race. I've wanted to run it the last few years because many of my running friends rave about the course, the volunteers and the fans. However, the last 3 years, I've been traveling during the month of October because air fares are at their lowest and I can knock out a few states in one month. But this year, since I'm closing in on 49 states, I am free during October. Yay!
I am following a formal training plan (Hal Higdon) because I need focus and discipline, if I'm going to do this right. So far, all body parts are in working order and nothing hurts. Let's hope that lasts!
So here's to training for 13.1 miles of fun and a PR!
