I’m heading out to run my fourth Rock n Roll Half Marathon and the weather is perfect. I’m hoping to beat my personal best of 2:08, but since I’ve been sick and coughing for the better part of two weeks, I’m not sure it’ll happen. We’ll see. A long running layoff before the race may become a new strategy!
My four previous half marathons look like this: 2:12, 2:08, 2:28 and 2:13. The 2:28 was the Jazz Half debacle a couple of years ago during which much of the field wilted in the heat and humidity. Like the lowest test score in school, I throw that one out.
I’ll check back in later.
