Half-Marathon Tomorrow

This afternoon, I'm off to Myrtle Beach, SC to run in the Dasani Myrtle Beach Half-Marathon tomorrow morning. A half-marathon is 13.1 miles, which should be well within my range -- I ran 14.0 miles in early January late December, and then 10.1 miles a week and a half ago. But I still have a small case of butterflies in my stomach -- it's only my second race at any distance, and my first long-distance race ever.

On this blog, I generally write about challenges I face after I've accomplished them, rather than before -- I don't like the idea of using my blog as some sort of public self-motivation tool. Nevertheless, I'll go out on a limb here and say that while I'll be satisfied finishing in 2:30:00, and happy if I finish in 2:25:00 or less, my goal is actually to finish in 2:20:00. We'll see what happens.

I only wish I had half the moxie you do when it comes to pushing myself. Good Luck. I have every confidence...

Thanks! We'll see how much moxie I have in about seven and a half hours...
