My first goal was to finish the race (despite an awful bike accident the week of the race).
My second goal was to get a PR (and it ended up being the worse race ever).
My third goal was to get a PR (AND I DID!)
My fourth goal was to survive (I was battling an injury the entire course).
My fifth goal- this year- is to again, get a PR. The one that I’ve been striving for ever since I first started:
I want to finish the race in 2:45 or less.
So, I’m mixing up my race strategy.
First – I’m running two-10 mile milers during training (previously, I’ve only done a 10 miler ONCE – if at all!).
Second (and relative to this blog post)- I’m listening to music throughout the entire race, which I've never done before...However, I’m thinking the music might keep me motivated and inspire me to run harder.
Why three songs? Well, it should take me about 3 songs to complete a mile!
Explain why you picked those songs for me and I’ll add them to my playlist. While running, I’ll think of you and why you picked these songs for me! So, in a way- you’ll be with me during my half marathon.
I’ll post my final playlist before the race- stay tuned!
