As things have picked up at work, I seem to have neglected my blog. However, in the same breath, I can say my running has not been neglected. I am on track to have the highest mileage month ever. My runs are feeling great. I'm not killing myself over how fast I run. I just run with what feels best. I think I am actually getting better workouts by doing so. And not to mention running more miles with Deb. She has been a great motivator and running partner. Gotta love it when you find someone who you just gel with all the way around. :)
I just checked the calendar and realized we are 46 days out from running Little Rock. Our running group, Muckas Running Club, have about 11 runners altogether. We have runners in every event taking place on Sunday. This includes the full and half marathons, as well as the 10K. This is the 10th anniversary of the Little Rock marathon so, we are expecting big things. This will make my 12th full marathon (this includes my 31-mile ultra).
What is my goal? To run happy and enjoy the race. The last time I rane this race (2011), I finished in 3:57. If I beat it, I beat it. If I don't, no harm. I just want to enjoy the race, enjoy the atmosphere, and finish strong. I want to enjoy our little weekend vacation with Deb and Amy. So, with that being said, come on March and come on Little Rock marathon. Let's do this and have fun along the way. :)
