Hello and Happy Friday!
We made it!
I leave in roughly 53 minutes (not that I am counting) for Santa Barbara.
I am staying there over the weekend (again) with my super cool friend.
Because the Shoreline Half Marathon in Ventura is on Sunday!
I am super excited.
I can’t believe I am actually running this race.
Now that I am better
And I have already run a Half Marathon (even though it sucked)…
I know I can do this one.
The course (so I have read) is relatively flat.
So that’s nice.
Since I finished the Wine Country Half in 2:14, and the SB Half in 2:17…
My goal is to finish this one in 2:15.
Which, according to CoolRunning.com, I need to run at a 10:17 pace.
Can I do that?
I sure hope so.
Hopefully my fancy schmancy new Garmin watch will help me run faster.
[Yes, schmancy is a word!]
(I just have to rub it in a little more)
Sorry buddies, but I’m not sorry.
I freaking love my Garmin watch.
Anyway, the high for Sunday should be about 77.
I’m a little nervous about that.
Yes, I know I am spoiled.
And it should be between 62 and 68 degrees from 8 am to 10 am.
Sooooo I think it might be a little hot!
Okay, I am done whining.
There WILL BE tacos and beer waiting for me at the finish line though…
I am sure that will be calling my name at about mile 10.
So there’s that.
I am so excited!!!
Whelp, it’s time to hit the road!
I am offffffffffffffffff to Santa Barbara!
When is your next race?
What is your ideal racing temperature?
Do you like tacos and beer?
