Two Races, One Weekend

I will be running in two races this weekend. Tomorrow is the Borgess/National City Half Marathon. My race plan is to keep the first mile at about 7:10, keep everything up to mile 7 around a 7:00/M, then try to crank it up to 6:50s. The temperature is supposed to be around 60 at the start—which I can handle so long as the oppressive heat’s ugly and mean sister humidity stays away.

Sunday is our local Race for the Cure, perhaps my favorite local race. I have no idea how I’ll be feeling after my half the day before, so I don’t have a set goal, just an expectation to push myself as hard as I can.

Happy running this weekend!

Are you a flogging monk? That's a lot of punishment.

Good luck!

You. You...well, glutton for punishment that you are, I hope you do really well, and I'm sure you will.

The weather outside right now is on the unpleasant side. May we all get our runs over and done with before it gets like this again tomorrow.
