Started training today for the mid-November Chickamauga Half Marathon -- a day 'early' based on Higdon's program. Needed to adjust to make time for church on Sundays. It is hard to do 10-milers that early and not fall asleep in the pew! This will be a change for me -- long runs on Saturdays. I've been running 'long' on Sundays for as long as I can remember. My goal at Chickamauga this year? Definitely under 1:50 (missed that by 3 seconds last year). Would love to be at 1:45. Need to get that confidence up, though. Sometimes negativity can carry with me all through a race. "Can't do this ... can't do this ... can't do this ... " Always has been a battle. I'll have to do some imagery during training these next few months -- seeing nothing but 1:45 at the finish line every morning I wake up. Anyway. Thoughts.

    Kym... You WILL get to the finish under 1:50.. If fact you will get under 1:45!! Glad to see that you are running that race again... it seems to be such a pretty run.

    You've got 18 weeks to prove that you CAN hit 1:45, and I'm betting on you to do it!! Good luck!

    You will do it! At least you don't have to run that loop the second time when the hills get bigger! :)

    Yup, I knew I needed to be starting training soon..... just didn't realize it was already :) I have signed up for the Atlanta 13.1 Marathon again as well. It again will be my half on the way to the full. It is in October.
