I updated my What’s Next page with a couple of half marathons that I won entries to in a silent auction. For $20 each, how can I pass them up!? Since they are so close to Boston, I will DEFINITELY just run them for fun – not race them.
The Lake Minnetonka Half Marathon was my first ever half marathon – in 2007 and I ran it in 2:07:10. I love looking back at stuff like that and seeing the improvement. I remember when I ran it I literally cried the last two miles and thought I was going to die. At a 9:43 pace for 13 miles! Now I could do it 2 minutes+ faster per mile!
The Lake Waconia Half Marathon is new and apparently tough. So that one will just be for fun too. Their post race party at Lola’s – with beer and burgers – makes for a fun day!
I’m already starting to think about next Fall and what marathon to do. Or whether to do one at all. Who am I kidding, you know I’ll sign up for one! 🙂 More than likely Twin Cities again – so that my fans (i.e. my mom and dad) can come out and cheer with their bright pink signs.
Am I the only one already starting to think about Fall marathons?? I’m a planner.
