Half Bound...Again!

I'm back!  And I'm once again training for the Zooma Texas Half Marathon.

Date:  March 23, 2013
Location:  Hyatt Lost Pines Resort, Bastrop, TX

The hubster has agreed to run it "with" me this time.  Actually, he'll probably finish an hour or so before I will, but that's okay.  We ran "together" last weekend, and will do so again tomorrow.  I expect we'll run "together" a lot before the half in March.

There was a time when I wouldn't even work out if he was in the vicinity and could see me.  And now I'll run with him.  Yes, I'm being sarcastic when I say we run "together."  His legs are a lot longer than mine, and he's been running a lot longer.  So he always ends up leaving me in the dust.  But he's always supportive, and I really appreciate that. 

I ran the Zooma half in just over 3 hours last time.  This time I'm shooting for a time goal of 2:30-3:00.  The training calendar is set up in Google Calendar, and I think I still have it set up to send me reminders.  I'd better go check on that.  I'm starting my training a little later this time, and I'm using a different training schedule, but I should be okay.  Tomorrow's run is set for 5-7 miles.  Monday actually starts my official training.

And yes, I will be taking pictures on my LSD training runs again.  I'm sure I'll see some of the same things as last time, but it's a different year!  Come along and enjoy the journey!
