Pre-race expectation

What a better way to start a blog than in the night before my second half-marathon.

I like to walk and I have been participating in smaller races for the past 2 and a half years.

Tomorrow morning I’ll be participating at the 2013 Lake Sammamish Half-Marathon.

The first one I did was about a year and a half ago, in November 2011. At that time, I was training a lot and was able to finish the 13.1 miles in 3 hours 49 minutes, without pushing myself too much.

This time I am not as prepared, as I haven’t been able to train much. But I still think I can do in under 4 hours. Well, I actually have to, since the course closes after 4 hours anyways…

When I signed up for tomorrow’s event, I had the idea of maybe trying to jog part of it. I trained jogging once and never again, so I gave up the idea and will just walk. But I’m still open to see how I feel and how well I do it. If at the time I feel I can jog a bit, I will. But just a bit.

But it’s getting late and tomorrow the day will be busy. So I’ll go get some sleep and I’ll tell you tomorrow how it went.


PS. I must confess I’m already thinking of my third one… just thinking though… 😉
