So unless I'm counting wrong (which is possible since I've never really been a numbers girl (which is off considering I like to run and running is all about numbers like mileage and paces and PRs, etc.) and I'm feeling too lazy to go back and count again to be sure)... I will be running my 20th half marathon in New Orleans on SUNDAY.
I feel like 20 is a good flat number, and it seems fitting that I am traveling to run a fun race in a fun city. A city I have never visited, no less, but that has been on my list to visit.
I had actually signed up for the full back in October, but I realized a while back that it just wasn't a good time for me to train for another full. It's turned out, I haven't really trained well for a half either.
This will not be a PR attempt. In fact, I am not making ANY kind of time goal. I just want to have fun and take pictures and enjoy the scenery of a new city and then enjoy the rest of the trip sightseeing with the girls.
I can't wait. It looks like we'll have good weather, so I'm packing all sorts of spring clothes for both the race and to wear around town.
I'll catch ya on the flip side!
