So, my plan? Finish under 3 hours. In three weeks, I'll be looking for a PR - less than 2:43 minutes. i keep telling myself. This time is good for an almost 57 year old who has only run for less than three years. Right?

Getting a little anxious
Yes, a little. My first half marathon, of two I've scheduled, is Sunday. I''ve only run ten miles straight. Last weekend I did 9 on Friday and then another 2.5 on Saturday but I am not sure that counts for 11 miles. I've struggled with trying to decide my plan for the race. It is important to me not to get injured. I'd like to really try for a PR on the November 21st half and want to consider this one just a long training run. I'm competitive enough not to want to finish last, although I know someone has to. It is hard not to compare myself to other runners. Comparison is the thief of joy.
