I know a bunch of people are running Chicago and other races this week. I'm doing Long Beach half. I am really well trained for this. I am consistently running 730 pace on long street runs (PR pace is 7:38 for 13.1) so I am feeling good about my PR chances. I'm just trying to stay healthy and relax through this busy week until race day.

I have a babysitter lined up for Sunday morning. I know what shoes I'll be wearing (not my Seeyas as I had hoped since my injured pinky toe still is sore; I'll be racing in my Merrells). I have a friend to pace me through the first few miles and possibly beyond, and I am super excited at my chances to PR. I think 1:35 is possible (if everything goes perfectly).

Gold medal goal: 1:35
Silver medal goal: sub 1:39 (PR is 1:39:30)
Bronze medal goal: get out there and have a good race.

I'll report back next week!
