So I’ll be running the A1A Half Marathon this Sunday, starting in downtown Fort Lauderdale and heading straight down to and alongside the Atlantic Ocean in Fort Lauderdale Beach. I ran this race last year and loved it, so I’m planning on loving it again this year. Would I like to PR this one? I mean, sure, but if I don’t I won’t stress too much. I just hope to do better than last year (2:12) and if I can, that’ll be vunderbar! Otherwise, it’s just a good excuse to go out there and hit the Sunday morning asphalt in style.
And speaking of style: check out the weather forecast!
I would have KILLED for this kind of climate last month in Orlando!
Anyway, race review to follow soon. This will be the first race since the IT band/knee issue flared up, so I’m curious as to how I’ll hold up. A test run for Tough Mudder, I suppose. Did I also mention I’m switching the DC run in March from a Full to a Half? I think one Full Marathon a season is a much more realistic (and less stressful) plan. Halves are more fun anyhow. Run and done in just around 2 hours and change. Plus you can still work a flight of stairs after. The last thing I want to do is struggle walking up the steps of the Lincoln Memorial because my legs refuse to function after doing 26.2 miles that morning. Feh. Here’s the video:
