2. I can't believe that the National Half Marathon is only a little more than two weeks away! I feel like I have been thinking about this race for so long (I did sign up last July!) that it's strange to think that it is almost here. I'm still figuring out pacing and how to approach the race, but I think I'm pretty close to deciding what my race plan will be. I'll probably have a longer post about this in the next week or so, but any suggestions are welcome!
3. I have also started thinking about my post-National Half schedule and realized that I have nothing on the calendar after the Broad Street Run on May 1. I have a few other ones tentatively in my head, but nothing firm, and now I have major race registration itch. Fortunately, a few of the ones I have been eyeing are opening registration soon, so I shouldn't have to wait too long for my fix. I think I've narrowed my fall marathon choices to Philadelphia, Richmond, or Outer Banks. They all fall in the time frame I am looking for (mid-November), are relatively easy for me to get to, and where I have friends to visit/stay with. If you have run any of them, I'd love to hear about it!
