So, my work finally decided to block blogger. Fantastic! Usually I kill my lunch hour at work catching up on blogs and updating mine, and now I cant. When I get home, usually the last thing on my mind is getting online, so this is proving to be a pain in the ass. *sigh*
On Saturday I got in my second 20-miler in my OKC marathon training, and it went much better than the first. We ran on the Little Blue Trace trail, it's nearly flat, and is just in really great shape. The weather was perfect, a little cool to start, then comfortable by the end. Having a bad long run always makes me question whether or not I REALLY want to do a marathon, but then a good long run just confirms that I do. So I'm feeling really good about OKC coming up in a month.
This weekend is the Olathe half, and I'm looking forward to seeing how fast I can go. Runners Edge is leading the pace groups, so I'm for sure going to plan on sticking with one of them. I'm thinking I'll do the 2:20 group, since I think that if I can do a 2:20 half, I can realistically do a 5:00 full. We'll see! They're calling for snow/sleet/rain, which should make things interesting. I thought we were done with the snow for this spring! But, I keep reminding myself that I do better running in the cold than the heat. So I'm trying not to let it bother me.
I'm also meeting up with Kimpossible, Adventure Seeker, and Run to Finish on Friday evening. Yay! My first bloggy meet up! :)
