One out of three – check:
It’s on! One of my goals for 2011 is to complete at least 3 races by June 2011. I’ve just trudged through a Rudolph Ramble (in a blizzard!) but since that took place in 2010 I’m not counting it in my tally for 2011. So, off to the Rock n’ roll marathon series I go! The husband and I are off to sunny Phoenix in January to participate in the PF Chang’s Rock N’ Roll half marathon. We’ve decided to do the 2-person relay and I’m running the initial 4.5 miles-ish of the course. Completing a half marathon (or even a full marathon for that matter) will be something I’d like to tackle down the road. But training for a half marathon is a bit more than I can bite off at the moment.
I’ve heard good things about this race series and I know they have a number of them across the country. Training for Phoenix type weather might be a little tricky, but have been running indoors on a treadmill as best I can.
My goals for competing in this half marathon:
- Run the full leg (no walking!!)
- Run with a 10:00 pace (or better)
- Have fun
Let’s see what happens!!
