I will run my 5th half marathon on Sunday - San Antonio Rock 'N' Roll. I am making the trip with Serene, Lisa, and Cassie - GIRL'S WEEKEND. My cousins Kelly, Christin, and Barrett will also be running the half marathon (it's Kelly and Christin's first). Chris, Roy, Meg, David (all running the full) and Dianna are all running as well. Did I leave anyone out? Because that is a LOT of people.
This is going to be SUCH a fun weekend. Getting to experience friends accomplish big goals. Getting away for a weekend. And the Expo. Let's not forget about the EXPO.
I signed up for this event ages ago before I realized that Dallas White Rock Marathon was moved up a week to Dec. 5th (4 weeks away). It's kind of put a kink in my training schedule and I've had to move my long miles up a few weeks. Because it's 4 weeks before my FIRST full marathon I don't want to go all out and push myself like a crazy person. But what do I do? Dad thinks I should run my race pace for the full. Should I? Or do I just go at a really comfortable pace and see where that takes me? I'd kind of like to run next to Kelly and Christin since it's their first...? Or do I treat it like I would any other training run? I don't know. And I may not know until the gun goes off. We'll see.
What I do know is that I am going to have a blast with my girls this weekend. Can't wait.
