Shun the Sun 1/2 Goals

So Saturday is .......drum roll.............................................
the Shun the Sun half marathon in Mesa.
So time to set some goals I guess. Since Mount Lemmon was uphill (have I mentioned that) I am not really sure what to expect. I have been running pretty quick for me lately but I feel that is one or two excited miles at the beginning of a race from being a burn out that results in a twelve minute mile limp towards the end. So the goals are:

1) Not die (I feel this is a standard that should not be abandoned)
2) Finish the race (whoooo medals)
3) okay time to raise the bar--- finish between 2:30 and 2:40 
4) have fun and obtain sweet swag 

Not so sure about number four and the swag since it is a health expo (ugh healthy- hand me wine and chocolate) and not really a running expo. Tricky.

On a side note school makes me feel like
Count down to the end of the semester.... only fourish more weeks
ugh..........I think I need a nap.


  1. 1. The course is pretty flat. It's two loops though (which I didn't know until we were running...)
    2. Last year they gave "dog tags" instead of a medal. Still neat though.
    3. I don't really remember an "expo," but the shirt was nice.

    Have fun and good luck!
