Mississauga Half Marathon Goals



We visited the expo and picked up our kits yesterday and had a close call when I realized in the parking lot that I no longer had the envelope containing my bib and chip. PANIC! I had set it down at a vendor booth and fortunately it was still there when I went back for it. Phew!

I'm feeling good about the race tomorrow. Hubby drove the route on Friday and reported some pleasant scenery and a slightly downhill course. There are only a few climbs - nothing like the monsters we faced two weeks ago. The weather looks great - about 8C (46F and mainly sunny.

I know I can run 2:00:00.

I think
I can run 1:55:00.

I hope
I can run something close to 1:50:00.

We'll see what tomorrow brings.

Good luck to my fellow runners. If you're going to be there, watch for me in my super bright yellow Sporting Life top.
