|This is EXACTLY how I look after a staff meeting.|
I've got three half-marathons planned this year, and I want them all to be as fun as my first, the Akron Marathon. In order for that to happen, I need to feel comfortable with a faster race pace.
Next Sunday is the Shamrock 15k, and I've only practiced the course once. I'm trying to mentally prep myself for not even approaching a PR on the 15k. My only other 15k was the Hot Chocolate in Columbus, which was a very flat course. I'm already beating myself up about it, which sort of defeats the purpose of entering the race in the first place. Sunshine could make all the difference on this one.
