Am I ready for the Vancouver USA Half Marathon Sunday morning?
In the past year & a half, I've completed 3 (official) half marathons. Countless "unofficial" during my training runs. I'm not sure what happens to me out on the race course / race day, but I never seem to hit my time goals. They're not outrageous, unattainable goals. They're time goals that I should be able to knock out of the park with ease. Don't get me wrong. Each race gets a little better. I usually set a new PR compared to the previous half, but I never hit my goal. I'm hoping this Sunday morning will be the race that I finally hit the mark. I'm in it for the experience, but it sure would be nice to finally do what I set out to do back in February of 2010 during the Disney Princess Half.
If you're out running Sunday morning, think of me! Send some good vibes my way. Here's to all of us participating in the inaugural Vancouver USA Marathon & Half Marathon!
