|Almost as big of a disaster as New Coke.|
Without forcing you to go back and read that whole post…
Picture it, Gasparilla, 2012….
I had intended to run a 1:14 because I had just run a 1:43 half marathon. But, come race day, it was HOT. And we all know I wilt like the delicate flower that I am in the sun. I wound up walking quite a bit and still managed to somehow pull out a 1:21:52. Which, looking back is still a pretty good time in my humble opinion. Nine miles is far to run fast. (I’m sensing a trend here with myself in that I either like really short or really long when it comes to racing.)
Anyway, I would love to beat that and get a new PR for 2015. However, the bridge in this run is no joke so we’ll see what I can hang on to while climbing that bad boy.
Coach Jon is still scheduling me for the butt kicking strength sessions. And with a half marathon next month and my full marathon in June, I’ve got lots of work to do.
Have a great weekend! Catch ya on the flip flop….
