New Bedford Half Marathon

I'm going to run the New Bedford Half Marathon on March 15th. I ran it two years ago and had a great time. It was my first half marathon so I didn't know what to expect. Here is the original post if you’re interested. http://tri-john.blogspot.com/2007_03_01_archive.html

I just decided to run it this week so I haven't been focused on training for a half marathon. I've mainly been working on weight training over the winter and only running about 10 to 15 miles a week. I took a look at my half marathon training plan... I need to start adding some longer runs on the weekends. I should have been running 10 miles on the weekend by now.

I ran it in 1:49:11 two years ago so I'm hoping to better my time a little. Hopefully it's not going to start snowing this time. Running along Clark’s cove in the wind and snow was a little challenging for my first half.

Well... almost time to go for a run on my lunch hour!
