Up next, half marathon #31.......

Up next, my first half marathon of the year(as well as half #31) - The Trail Half Marathon!  It's funny to say that it's my first this year because last year it was already my third half marathon and my seventh race.  This will only be my second race this year.  As most of you know, I've made an effort to continue running but racing less.  I will say that racing less certainly gets you more excited about racing.
Last year I finished in 2:06:51
I ran the Trail half marathon last year and loved it.  You can read about it HERE.  I ran it really fast for me last year too but I ended up getting hurt after the race and had to take two weeks off of running.  This year I'll be running this quite slow and would be happy with 2:30.  It's about my training pace this year and it will keep me running into the year.  This year is all about staying healthy and not finishing times.

This year I'm also running the Serious Series which is made up of the Trail half marathon, Flirt with Dirt 10k, and the Legend half marathon, all put on by Running Fit.  For doing all three races, you get an extra medal and a mug.  Sweet! I can't wait!

The weather is looking kind of cold this year with temperatures in the low 30's to start the race.  Ugh - can't say I'm looking forward to that but at least it's going to be dry.  Regardless, it will be a fun time since my running buddies Kevin and Dave will also be there.

Hope to see you out there.

Have a great day and....Keep Running!!!!
