It seems like only yesterday I was joking about doing 5 half marathons in 5 days, but it’s been 8 months in the making. When Kim and Jess started talking about it on Facebook, I never thought I’d actually do it (and sadly I’m the only one of the three of us doing it). But I made the “mistake” of sharing the idea with Beer Geek, and next thing I knew, it was the plan.
Since then, I’ve run a lot of miles. Not as many as planned thanks to a bit of a detour. But a lot. And tomorrow we leave for the adventure!
But the big question is “What are my goals?”
All along, I’ve said that my goal was to finish all five, preferably upright and smiling.
At one point when training was going well, my goal was to run all 5 in under 2:30. Now, all I can hope for is that they are all under 3:00.
But, you know what? I am going to finish and I am going to be smiling, I just can’t guarantee I’ll be standing. Thankfully, there are about 100 other crazies, so hopefully someone will drag me to the finish line. So, Texas, Oklahoma, Kansas, Colorado, and New Mexico, I’m comin’ for ya!
And if you’re wondering what compression socks/sleeves I got to go with this outfit…
Because if you can’t be fast, you might as well be awesome. ;o)
