Almost Fall Racing Season

37 days

That is how much time I have left until my first big race of the season. I added this one so I can use it as a (hopefully) better proof of time for the marathon. I wasn't too thrilled with my last half time, and so I am hoping I can better it to move up in the corrals. My goal is to shave 10 minutes off my time, but if my training runs are an indication, it won't happen. I am becoming faster with my runs of 6 miles or less, but anything over that and I am still struggling to keep my pace under 10:30. I tell myself it is the heat, and once it cools off I will run my target pace. (It felt like 88 degrees at 6:30am when I left for my 9 mile run Saturday morning.) Or it could be this is the pace my body is set to run and I won't be able to change it. Either way, I will keep pushing and see what the cooler weather holds for me.     


  1. I am so excited for fall running season! We have 6 half marathons coming up and I can't wait for the cooler temps.

  2. No matter your pace, you're running! And, you have some pretty big finish lines you're going to be crossing. Consider those HUGE wins. :)

  3. At least you are doing it :) Good luck !!!

  4. I just came to your blog, and I was like... um... no.... it's 26 days. LOL! Time is flying, but still no fall temps!

    1. It is scary how quickly the weekend is coming. I wish the temperatures would cool down a bit.


I'd love your opinion!
