About Pom and Half Marathon Goals.

First thing first, how do you choose a pomegranate?
I bought two at the store and the little seeds inside are hard! I cannot remember if I am supposed to spit those seeds inside out or if I am supposed to swallow them. But I am swallowing them.
Oooh, look who is getting lots of fiber?
This is this evening's snack. Greek yogurt with banana, grapes, pomegrante, a sprinkle of granola and a drizzle of homemade Arkansas honey. Delicious!

So, I'll be running #4 half marathon this weekend.
I haven't been the most diligent when it comes to training this time around.
But here are the goals.
Really and truly, I just want to enjoy this half marathon. The crowd support was awesome last year and I just want to enjoy it.
I am not going to be gunning and running a PR, but IF (that's a BIG IF), I have a time goal, it would be either
2:31:10 (the time it took for me to run this half last year)
or anything sub-2:27.

All right, gonna go for a short, easy few miler tomorrow before race day!


  1. Good luck. Just see how you feel, and most importantly, HAVE FUN!!!!

  2. Good luck! Pomegranates are still a mystery to me. I never buy them myself because I'm afraid I won't know what to do with it!

  3. Good luck!!! I'm in the same position - my training has been less than stellar!

  4. I really hope you PR!! If you PR, then I might PR, too!

    Seriously, we need to coordinate schedules and finally race together sometime!

  5. No idea on the poms. I do know if you peel them underwater it is supposed to be easier.

    Good luck with the half marathon! I will be watching for race results!

  6. Good luck and have fun. You'll do great. :)
