Race Goals: Frederick Half Marathon

The countdown in on, with only 23 days left until my very first Half Marathon! I am unbelievably excited and am over planning (it is what I do). You can only have one first Half Marathon right? Everything needs to be perfect! So here are my goals in order of importance:

  • I need a cute outfit. So far I have my Lululemon Skirt and my Brooks Ravenna shoes will be here Friday...I'm still in need of a t-shirt or tank and a hat.

  • Get to sleep by 8 pm the night before. My alarm will go off at 4 a.m. so if I can get a good 8 hours of sleep I think I will be set.
  • Get at least 1 good running picture out of the event. I have too many bad pictures and not enough good ones. I won't have any spectators up there to cheer me on so hopefully the pros will get a few of me so my chances of getting a good one are a little higher.
  • Finish under 2:15:00. 2:10:00!
At the end of the day I just want to have fun - which means trying to relax, go with the flow, and whatever happens happens. It may be my day to rock may not. Either way it is my first half marathon so I want the memory to be wonderful!


  1. I'm so excited for you- your first Half Marathon! I'm already looking forward to hearing about how it goes and seeing a few awesome shots of you. Fingers are crossed that they pros will get some good photos of you.

    I LOVE that Lululemon skirt. I actually just pinned one I saw on my Pinterest. I like the cute little butt ruffle!

  2. Thanks Christina! I'm getting more excited by the day. The lululemon skirt is unbelievably comfortable. I'm trying to talk myself out of the Stuff Your Bra Tank 0 it is in my shopping cart just waiting for me to hit submit :)
