My first 1/2 marathon is coming up at the end of the month in Cape Cod & i can't wait! My goal from the start has been to be under 2hrs. For my long run with my Fiance this Sat. he wouldn't tell me our route or distance until the run was overwith, and I wasn't allowed to wear a watch. Well, at the end of the run, it turns out I had ran the full 13.1miles in 2hrs 2min!!! 9:20min/miles. Being that it was just a training run, I feel as though iI can run so much faster when the race days comes, because of all the people and excitement. Plus I felt great the whole run. Now, I'm thinking of changing my goal to 1:50. & I think I can reach it if I really push myself. I'm very excited!

    As a side note, how great of your fiance to come up with an idea like that! My BF would never EVER run that far with me, let alone come up with an idea like that! Sounds like a keeper :)

    Thanks! He is a keeper! Sometimes I swear he is the fastest man alive, but he has been training with me and always lets me pick the pace, but pushes me when I need it. & he will be staying right with me for the race!

    That's great!!! But a 12 minute difference might be tough! But if you're up for a 8:45/8:50 pace then nail it!! Im hoping to run at a 9:08 pace to get under 2 hours mu first half in 2 weeks!! Yikes...gotta take care of this injury first!
