Kimba Runs a Road Race

So why is the Trail Goddess running a road race?

A 1/2 marathon, for Pete's sake.

I  haven't run a 1/2 marathon race in..3 years? 4?

This is the Tour de Ashland 1/2 Marathon.  In, you guessed it, Ashland Ohio.  The course map looks like it just winds in and out of the city streets of Ashland, so I feel pretty safe I won't be a target for deer hunters.

It looks like a pretty hilly course.

I used a running calculator to punch in a finishing time. I would like to finish under 2.5  hours, so how about 2.22?  I need to keep a 10.49 mile going.
Okay, what if I maintain an 11 minute mile?  Then I could finish in 2.24.

I really have no idea what I can finish this in.  Maybe I should leave the watch at home.

I will carry a hand held water bottle, don't laugh at me.  At least I won't wear the hydration vest and several pounds of various ultra fuel.  I will carry one gel or one little PayDay bar.

This should be interesting. The weather looks good for Saturday.

I just have to remember I have a race to attend!

Chip timing and everything!  Yahoo!!

  1. Good luck out there. It's kind of fun going back to the road racing on occasion. It also reminds me why trails are my true love. Have a blast!
