The last day to register at a reduced rate of $40 is August 23. I think I am going to wait a few more weeks before I officially turn in my registration.
I believe I am ready for one. I am itching to do one, actually. It may not be pretty, but I just want to cross the finish line and get a finisher's medal. I like blings that I have to work for.
I have no idea what that place looks like. No idea about elevation and there isn't an elevation map of the course on the Internet. I don't know what the temperature will be like either. Lastly, I think I might be running alone. It will be my first half marathon and finishing alone seems a little blah. I have always envisioned finishing it with a few people I know, eating breakfast and just feeling happy and accomplished.
Regardless of actually running a half or not, I am starting my training anyway! I have done that 2 times already. I failed the first time because my knee wasn't cooperating. I think it was a case of too much, too fast. I finished a second training for Nashville's (which I didn't run because logistically, it just wasn't practical). So, I am going to start training for my 3rd half marathon training. If I stick to the plan, I would be ready on this Soaring Wings half marathon, if I chose to run it. Do you have a favorite plan to follow? I am looking at Hal Higdon's Half Marathon Training for Novice. The longest run is a 10-miler. Do you think that is enough?
Decisions. Decisions. Decisions. Should I do Soaring Wings, even though I have no idea what it will be like? How's Hal's training program? What would you do?
