Baltimore Half Marathon Goals

by - Thursday, October 14, 2010

I can't believe another race weekend is practically here. It kind of seems like it was just the other day that I was prepping for the Philly RnR Half, but that was almost a month ago now.

Time flies.

I'm looking forward to the Baltimore Half for a few reasons.

1. Baltimore is a great city and they always put on a great race.
2. Baltimore is the place I ran my first marathon, so it has a special place in my heart.
3. My mom is coming down to run too.
4. The finish through Camden Yards is awesome.
5. The Gummi Bear Guy near near mile 23 of the full/10 of the half

I'm not however, looking forward to Baltimore's hills. There are lots of them and they aren't small.

I'm running this race purely for fun. It's a cutback week in my training plan, so the distance is perfect for my long run. I won't be pushing it too hard because I want to recover quickly to bounce back in my marathon training.

So my goals for this race are pretty simple:
1. Run.
2. Have fun.
3. Finish feeling strong.

I can't wait for Saturday morning when I'll be standing at another start line! I love racing!
