As you are reading this, I am running (or already finished). I’ve been training for this 10k for a few months and having a lot of fun, challenges, tears and laughs along the way.
But first, Lilly’s run:
As we walked by the medical area Lilly stopped to watch them paint a few lines. He looked and her and said “wanna help me”… “sure she said”. This was the medical area at the finish line!
And we had some fun during the run at the 41km marker and after giving out HIGH FIVES!!
Last but not least…after walking A LOT, running a little she slowly lets go of my hand and takes off, then sprints towards the finish line! Atta girl!
We had a lot of fun!
Okay, my 10k today:
In learning from others in this lovely blogging world, Amy from Fitness Meets Frosting wrote a post last fall called ABC goals for her 1/2 Marathon and I liked the process…so I’m giving it a try. I’ll let you read her descriptions as I don’t want to copy them…and they’re funny.
A – Best Case or Ultimate Goal
B – Race Day Goal
C- The Almost Guaranteed Goal
So – what are MY goals???
A – 57:00 Everything is going my way, from eating (my stomach problems I’ve been having lately, vanish), fluids in/out, temperature is perfect and the hills don’t kill me. This would be my ultimate goal.
B – Sub 60 – Anything under 60 minutes.
C – 1:05 and finish with a smile – heck I just ran 10k!
I’m actually going to pace myself just behind the 55:00 pace bunny and see what happens. Lofty goal and I don’t expect to finish in 55 minutes but if I could get 57 minutes, holy moly…I’ll cry at the finish line.
Wish me luck.
Positive thoughts….I’ll need them.
I’m going to Kick it up and Go for it.
Just Giv’r … true Bluenose style.
I’m off to get Flat Piper ready 🙂
What are you doing today?
