So, all I get to look forward soon is the last half marathon of the season....Iron Girl on April 22nd. The course looks to be beautiful, but I must admit that the bridge (which is more intimidating than the Ringling Bridge - which makes people worried - combined with the heat is a lot to take in for this new runner! Us Floridians don't spend much time outside after April 1st (if its not in a pool!).
Joe has also been crazy busy this last 2 months, and next month is his busiest month of the year...so I have to really be focused to get in as much running as I possibly can. And, we will not have a kitchen until after tax season...so our life is not going to get less hectic anytime soon. But, hey, I definitely want to do better at this last race than I did at the last two. Quite frankly, the lack of running really did affect me at both Sarasota and Florida Beach Halfathon. I know that I am capable of a better performance. Sure, the heat played its part...but I have not been putting in the requisite miles as of late. Now, can I reverse this trend without hindering my family in the process? Its simply hard to do right now...but I'll try find a way!
So, there are a few small events between now and the fall race season, but I am going to ensure that I am respectable for this last half AND enjoy it tremendously at the same time!
