Manchester 1/2 in 3 days

I'm 3 days away from the Manchester Half-Marathon and I couldn't be any less stressed. I've done the distance before, so I know that I can do it. My only goal is to run it at 1:55 or under, which I think is very possible.

If I did 1:55, that would put me on pace for a 4:00 marathon (2x + 10 minutes), which is my goal for the Mardi Gras Marathon in February. Tomorrow, I pick up my packet from the expo, procure some Clif Shots and probably go for a quick run.

The best part: they're not even pissy about wearing headphones. I mean, I'd violate that rule anyway, but it's nice not to have to break rules if I can help it.

Good luck on the 1/2 marathon this weekend. This must be a new marathon since I'd never heard of it before. For my 50 states marathon quest, I decided on Clarence Demar in Keene (mid-Sept). Maybe I'll see you there?
