Ready for #11

2 more days until I'm running half marathon #11!
It will be kind of bittersweet, since I've ran the Carmel marathon the past 2 years, and now will just be running the half. But, I know I've made the right decision in switching it, so I have peace about it.

 I'm super excited and am going to try like heck to PR. So, that will be under 2:23.

I've had some really good runs lately, and can tell I'm pushing myself more. For instance, I don't walk up the hills, I run them! I tell myself I can walk when I reach the top. Of course then I want to keep on running.



This section of the park I run in smells soooo good. I don't see any flowers around, so I don't know if it's this tree, or what it is. I really want to do my full run right in that section so I can keep on smelling heaven.

I'll be staying with a friend in Indy this weekend, and Saturday will be spending the day with another friend I met through my blog. She's running the full!

Is anyone else racing this weekend?

  1. No racing for me until Saturday, May 2, but I'll be out there running some anyway! You are going to have a great race; I hope you enjoy every minute and I'm so glad you'll be meeting up with some fun folks, too! I've been smelling some lovely honeysuckle on one of my routes; isn't it nice? Have a great day, Katie!

  4. I have been curious what you were going to decide. I think you made the right choice because you know you did and your comfortable and happy with it!
    Who knows, maybe next year I will be at Carmel and we can met up for real:)
