Richmond Planning

So this weekend marks my third to last race of the year. I will be making my way down to Richmond to run in the Richmond half marathon.

Now, I'm not expecting a lot out of myself at this race. I want to do well, and I hope to do well, but the truth is I just haven't put in enough training to turn out a PR. This does not mean though that I'm just going to throw in the towel.

My Plan/Goal for the race:

 1. Have fun as always

2. Still run under a sub 1:50 - I should be able to do this with the tempos I have been doing

3. Start off with the 1:45 pace group and hold on for dear life :)

4. If I'm still feeling good with a 5k to go, negative split my miles.

5. Actually eat/drink something during the race as I never have during a half. Not smart I know, but I think I've come a long way this year with nutrition during a race so hopefully it will help me not die by mile 9/10.

6. Have fun - oh yeah I already said that :)

So anyhow, there you have it. I'm excited about this race as I have herd good things about it. Now the hard part ... deciding what to wear for race day :)

Happy Wen All :)  


  1. man I want to run that half so bad, can't wait to hear how you do. good luck!

  2. I'll see you there! I'm doing the half too and will probably be around your pace-- although not ambitious enough to start with the 1:45ers! Hope to see you on course!

  3. Knock 'em dead out there!! I'll be thinking of you!!

  4. Good luck this weekend! Can't wait to hear all about it!
