Things I Love Thursday - Getting Ready to Race

Saturday is race day. My first half marathon since last August. The first of four between now and the end of this August.

Do I want to PR? Yes. What does that mean? Beat my 1:59:08 time. Have I worked hard? Yes. Were there bumps in the training plan road? Yes, a week of biking three weeks ago because of a broken toe. Am I going to let that be an excuse? No. Am I going to leave everything I have out there on Saturday? That's the plan.

Besides kicking some half marathon booty, why am I excited for this race? Because Farrah is running it too. Alicia will be at one of the aid stations. And when I finish, my family will be waiting for me and then my Princess is going to run her first official race, the Kids 1 Mile run.

I was going to include a pic of my race day outfit because I'm a girl that way, but the weather keeps changing, so my planned attire does too. Since it was almost 70 degrees today and is supposed to snow tomorrow, I've given up making a final clothing choice until tomorrow night.

Now I'm off to bed to get a little extra sleep before the big day.


  1. Rest up! Good luck to you and your princess.
    And apologies to 1:59:08. He had a good run.

  2. yeahhhhh!!! excited for you to rock out this weekend! wish I was running that one but I am doing provo next weekend :) good luck!

  3. You should definitely post your race outfit post race, then. Now I'm interested!

    Good luck!!!!

  4. All the best for the race! Go do it!

  5. Have a wonderful race!! Enjoy - especially the Princess in her first official race!! How exciting!

  6. I'll be at the Get Fit Aid station by the Golf Course Club House so wave when you go by. Good luck tomorrow on beating your PR.

  7. GOOD LUCK Barbie!! Go get that PR!! High Five..

    Hey how can I get a Runner Sticker?? I will Runnerd out and do whatever :)

  8. Rock that race girl, you've totally got this and I can't wait to see what adorable outfit you picked to run in! :)

  9. Remember how I said I'd be at an aid station? Then went for a 4 mile run and a friend called (who is recruiting pacers for the race) and asked if I'd pace a 2:05 group. So stop over and say hi...I'm sure I'll have a sign or something.

  10. Go get it! Kick that half marathon booty!

    Have a great race -- enjoy it!

  11. Good luck for the half and the mile!
    I am sure you will destroy your PR....all those YES are more than a hope.

  12. I know this is a little late, but good luck! I hope the race went well.

  13. Aww, I love that your princess ran her first race kind of with you! I hope it went well today!
