Jax Marine Corps Half Marathon

I'm officially signed up for my next half marathon!  I really wanted to do one in Arkansas to check off another state on my list but I'm quickly running out of vacation days at work after our trip to Indiana in August and Oregon in September...  so I'm going to wait until next April to do their Russvegas half marathon.  If only we didn't have to work, haha!

Instead I decided to settle on a race closer to home, Jacksonville Marine Corps 1/2 Marathon so that I don't have to travel/miss work.  Plus I love anything that supports America (duh) so I'm excited to get patriotic and celebrate our freedom!  The training program that I'm doing with Jeff Galloway got me a discount of ten dollars and the race was only 50 to begin with - bargain!!  Makes it even better :)

Many things can change in the next few months but currently my goal is to do my fourth half marathon in October (signed up) and my first full marathon in February (not signed up).  I have my eye on the Hilton Head Island Bridge Run in February but that one I'm not quite ready to commit to.

My run/walk didn't go very well yesterday.  I'm really struggling with stress from work and I'm exhausted by the end of the day.  I did complete the 27 minutes but barely.  About half way through I switched from 30/15 to 15/15 and that helped a little.  My stats aren't great, I think a little over 2 miles.  I'm hoping tomorrow will be much better.
