It’s race weekend!
Man, that one came up fast! Well, actually, how is it August? 😛
It’s time to head on up to Salinas and meander my way through back roads enjoying the sites of crops, check another Mission off the list, and enjoy half marathon #27 in Steinbeck country.
My training has been ummm, a little absent this month. With work going through a conversion, I tried but my running took a hit. As did my sleeping.
So with that in mind, I have zero goals for this weekend other than to have a good time. I plan to just go out there and enjoy the views and the course. I know I will be slower than normal and that’s fine. More time to enjoy the course, right? I here there’s a great BBQ at the finish- I think I’ll finish just around the time a BBQ craving hits. 😛
I am hoping this odd heat wave with mugginess breaks though. The weather stalking has commenced and right now it’s looking like a warm morning. I will be drinking lots of water.
