That, and get my speed up to a bit more. LOL I know they ask for a 12 min mile (which I can totally do--- for 2-3 miles only though!) I wanna run with Jeff! Does he do the walk/run or just run? I bet they go through Carsland this year. Which is AWESOME.
Last year for the Tink Half it was on Saturday morning because the 5K was at night, but I'm sure this time it will be on Friday.

Yes, we did a 40/20 run/walk/run. It was a lot faster than a 12 minute mile though. I average about 13 but I signed up anyway and there were slower people than me. I think they say that so they can start the meet and greet on time.

I found out on the blog.

It appears I haven't posted in a week; guess I've been busy but darn if I know doing what.

Sunday I did my "long" run: 4 miles in 1 hour 30 seconds. Woohoo! Today I started the 6th week of the 5k101 program which called for 2 intervals of 12 min jog/3 min walk. Somehow I got through it without stopping during the jog.

I can see how folks say running can be addictive - I am enjoying seeing that I'm accomplishing something that I didn't really think would be possible.

5 months ladies! We're doing awesome and I can't wait to see you all on January 20th!

I signed up but had scheduling conflicts and I didn't get to run it. I didn't feel too bad because I only paid $40 to sign-up and a lot of the reviews I read said that it did not go too well for being an inaugural event.

Yeah, I was wondering how that limo/shuttle bus was going to go over. That was what was holding me back. There's a new one in SD too. I saw it on a ad as well and that 1 is in March. The best part is that it's like 1/2 the price of the RnR in June.

I am going!

I am so excited to be doing this race. When I heard about it last year I challenged my sisters to do it with me and they accepted. I have loved reading all the posts on this thread. You guys are inspirational! I don't know where we are staying yet, we are working on that. Can't wait for this race. It will be my 4th half in a year. I am super slow though so don't be too impressed.

Hey everyone!

Just checking to see how everyone's progress is going.

I just signed up to do my 10km race in October so I can use it as my qualifying race so I'm not in the back corral. I'm hoping to come in around an hour. Used to be able to do in about 52 mins a couple of years ago but I just don't have the time to put into training like I used to. Oh well....

What kind of times have you guys submitted?

I'm doing an October 10K too- hoping for 1:15-1:16. My fastest previous was 1:19 and I wasn't really "racing"- just trying to get to the end, KWIM? So hoping with motivation of possibly moving in the corrals (or at least not getting stuck in back for lack of time submission!) I'll be able to move a bit faster.

I submitted a 2:45 at registration and that's probably where I would land if all the stars aligned and I ran a perfect race. I'm not fast for sure, but hoping to finish sub 3 hrs this year.

I have a 10K coming up in less than 30 days now! It will be my first and I still havent run that much even in a training run. I did 5.5 on Sunday so I'm almost there. My first goal will simply be to finish since its my first time. It took me 1:13 to do that 5.5 on Sunday so though I'd like to shoot for 1:15 for the 10K, that might be unrealisitc. We'll see what happens. No matter what time I do get I'm gonna turn it in and see if I can at least move up one corral. Doesn't hurt to try, right?

I think even just submitting a time should hopefully get you moved up. Any time I would think is better then no time.

Don't forget that you always go faster on race days too then you do during a training run. The adrenaline gets you going and the other racers and the whole atmosphere is so electric that your 10k time will probably end up being faster then you think its going to be.

Plus you might get slightly cooler weather in 30 days and that should help!

Good luck! I saw your post and could swear I thought you were running next weekend too? No idea why, but I thought that for some reason.

Oh my god Patty! Please tell me your training right now inside!?! I was in Vegas this weekend and the heat was horrible, almost all consuming. And it never really went away ~ we left a club Sunday morning around 1:30 and it was still warm out.

Totally inside. Either on treadmill at home or the indoor track at gym

I do a mile here and there outside, but only a mile and only before 7am! Otherwise it's just crazy

Though it's a cold spell this week. Only low 90s. Lol. Really nice though for us for August!
