1. Sunday is my 3rd full Around the Bay 30km race. I love this race. The route is different and challenging, the expo is pretty good, there’s a Grim Reaper and from a “I don’t care but I do” point of view, the race shirts rock.
2. Last year I was dressed like Ms Winter:
This year it is looking like a capris and tshirt kind of day. 15 degrees, virtually no wind and cloudy. Perfect running weather in my books.
3. I am my usual excited/nervous pre-race self. I know this is a training run but I want to run strong and give myself a bit of a confidence boost going into the last weeks of marathon training. My goal is to start slow. Seriously….this is what I will need to do in the marathon so let’s practice it in a race for a change. Once I hit 15km, I am just going to keep picking it up a bit and see how long I can hold it. I am hoping for a PB but just want to finish feeling…’good’.
4. “…last weeks of marathon training.” After Sunday, there are only the following runs left: 20km, 34km, 36k, 23km and 10km. Yikes. There is lots of running left to do but it seems like time has flown by since training started.
Are you a Bay-er? Are you racing this weekend?
