After deciding to change to the half marathon several months ago, my registration status never reflected the change and I couldn't get a response from anyone by phone or email about it, so I resigned myself to trying to run the full and then finally decided to not run it at all. Then a few weeks ago, I decided I would go pick up my race packet and get my t-shirt anyway and pulled up the web site to get details about the expo. On a whim, I checked my registration status again, and it showed me running the half. Finally. So tomorrow I am running the Ogden Half Marathon.
This will be my second half marathon. My third, the Utah Valley Half Marathon, is on June 12 and I really want to train well over the next four weeks so I can PR, so I am treating tomorrow's like a training run. I don't have a time goal and even considered taking my camera but decided it would probably be annoying to carry for two hours. For the record, my half marathon PR is 2:00:42.

RUN: I'm on the fence about the new shoes. I gave them a two mile test run yesterday and will give them another go next week. I'm almost wondering if they are too cushiony (not sure that's a word, but you know what I mean).
