Friday Five- Hershey Half Goals


I am so excited for the Hershey Half! Last year this was my first Half Marathon, and it was so scary! And now we are back for it! It's going to be awesome to be back!




If you are reading this on a Friday Morning, it's likely I'm stuffing my face with pancakes right now! I'm not carb loading, that is my regular Friday off breakfast.

Here are my Hershey Half 2016 Goals

1. Have fun! This is always my #1 Goal.

2. See my Love Nugget have fun- He will be doing the kids run on Saturday night. I am way more excited than he is!

 
3. Time Goals- Hershey Half is Hilly. But I trained for hills. My time for Hershey last year was 2.06, so I think my goal will be to beat that time. I would be happy with a 2.03.

4. See Roger meet his time goal. Roger said to me that he wasn't doing the Half Marathon at least 6 times this last training season. He has been running faster the last 3 weeks, (which I told you before, has been driving me crazy!)


5. See my friend Jodi Meet her time goal- OMG! The very first review I read of the Hershey Half was in Jodi's Blog. I followed her on Instagram for a long time, before we met in real life. She is the sweetest! We have done 2 races together, and a couple of weeks ago, she completed her first Ultra! I was super excited when she told me she was doing Hershey Half. We will be running together again!




Are you racing this weekend? Have an awesome race!!
