This weekend Wrightsville Beach ½ marathon is on my plate. To get ready for it, I have been watching the weather forecast. If the weatherman is right, there will be 100% chance of rain on Sunday morning and 13 mph wind to face. Oh yeah, the temperature is expected to be a nice warm 52 degrees.
Enough is enough. I am starting to believe Mother Nature has it in for me. When I look back at Charleston, the conditions were just as tough. The temperature was in the lower 30s, but the wind was about as harsh as it can get.
Maybe I am expecting too much to expect anything different.
I ran 1:19 at Myrtle Beach and I am pretty sure that I didn’t get my best effort. My hope is to go 1:18 at Wrightsville Beach. Who really knows? I will wake up Sunday morning and run what I run.
Maybe my legs will finally show up.
One thing is for sure. I will be packing a few extra trash bags for race morning.
Sharing one thought at time,
