New Bedford Half Marathon just days away!

I completed my last long run (13 miles) before the New Bedford Half Marathon on Sunday the 18th. I ran about half the actual course and then headed to the park to finish some loops. I wanted to run along the water and hit some of the hills so I would know what to expect on race day. It felt great and my knee did fine, but I could have used another water stop. I hate running with anything in my hands so I parked my car on the route so I could stop about half way and take in some water and a gel. It was a warm day about 47 degrees and the park was full of walkers and kids on bikes. I had to run in the street most of the time, but it was great to just be outside on a nice day.
For the rest of this week I plan on taking it easy. I have a few short 3-4 mile runs planned and two rest days before Sunday’s race.

Wish me luck!

Good luck out there! I hope the warm weather earlier this week didn't have you looking forward to a 50 or 60 degree race race this weekend, b'c i know running in a t shirt on wednesday, and now setting out tights, several long sleeve tops, a hat and gloves for my 5k tomorrow, in the snow, just seems odd.

I have to say I was looking forward to 50+ weather...oh well! I should be ok, I have my running tights, bottom layer, long sleeve top, hat, gloves and snorkel! Does it get any better than that! I'll be sure to post pics soon, this should be a fun race. Thanks everyone!!!
