half #5 prep + playlist.

by Hillary on July 15, 2011

After 26 workouts, I am officially done with training for half-marathon #5. Tomorrow is Race Day!

I’m pretty pumped about this run. I hope my legs are as excited as I am. If not, I made a decent playlist that I hope will accelerate the adrenaline.


Current song obsession: Moves Like Jagger

I had CoolRunning calculate my “dream on” mile splits. I think goals are a wonderful thing; but, I don’t want to be too ambitious, as I think the time of the race (7:00pm) and summer temperature could affect my running.

Do you expect a PR every race?

About those beets, I finally got around to roasting them… and when I did, I ate all four! I think there are worse things to indulge in ;)


An interesting combination of ingredients (and not exactly ideal pre-race fuel), but it was tasty.

Organic baby spinach, organic strawberries, roasted golden beets, red onion, pistachios and creamy chevre drizzled with clover honey, olive oil, S + P


I need to finish organizing my race gear for tomorrow’s travels…

Hope you have a lovely weekend!!

Good luck tonight! I used to expect to PR at every race and get frustrated if I didn’t, but my last race this past week was the first time I had no expectations going in about PR’s and it was fun to not worry about time and to not feel the let down later when I didn’t beat my PR time :)
