Maybe One More Chance??

Well it looks like there is going to be one more Half Marathon on my calendar this year :) The Santa Hustle Half Marathon & 5k  once again in the great state of Tennessee but this time in Sevierville which just so happens to be where we got married at! It is really pretty there during Christmas time and with LOTS of shopping places maybe a little Christmas shopping can be done.   This race is December 11 so that means I have 3 weeks to get in some good training runs, however I am not going into this one thinking 1:59:59. I am thinking whatever it is it is! I have a feeling this one will be quite hilly also so I will be sure to start right away on some hills. I also am not wanting to put any pressure on myself usually that's when the best in me comes out when I am "not really" trying (if that is ever possible :)

We have a local half here in Lexington, Ky Run the Bluegrass
2012 will be the third year for it and it was my first half that I ran! They are also changing the course completely in 2012. I kind of feel obligated to run this half so my mom went ahead and signed me up as part of my Christmas! Right now in my mind this will be the race that I train for to get that 1:59:59 or maybe even better! So I guess I am like several other of you fabalous bloggers, I am looking into 2012 races. Do you know of any good half's in the Kentucky, Indiania, Ohio, Tennessee area??
Tomorrow a winner will be selected for my YANKZ GIVEAWAY if you haven't entered yet do so HERE before its too late!

In my opinion (and living in TN) you've got to train hard on hills to hit sub-2:00 in these parts. The rolling hills are just killers! I'd check Indiana. There's a Carmel Half and the Indy Mini, but I'm betting the Mini is sold out already.

I loved the Oak Barrel Half in Lynchburg! I think I'm running it again.
