I did it. I signed up for my third half marathon!
It’s the Fox Cities Half Marathon in Menasha, Wisconsin (Appleton area) 2012, and it’s my third time running that race. I love running it because the course is somewhat flat (besides two killer hills), there are tons of people cheering you on on the sidelines and the post-run corral (recovery/snack area) always has some great stuff (like chocolate milk, muffins and Arby’s roast beef sandwiches). Woo-ee!
In the past I have followed Hal Higdon’s Novice 1 half marathon training program. This same program helped me reach a 2:05:04 in 2010 and a 2:01:02 last year (see my race recap here.)
Goals for this Year’s Race:
- Beat 2 hours
- Try to keep runner’s knee at bay (keep up with PT exercises)
- And to look like this guy:

Question: Do you have a race you are training for? If so, what are your goals for the race?
