Crystal you saved the day once again! I really needed that boost of seeing your face and the “drink” to carry me to the end!! Thanks for being out there!
Race report and more photos coming tomorrow about my little run through LA.
I’m a tired girl so bed it is!!
Flashback Aloha LA Marathon Edition Friday!!
I’ve run the LA Marathon the past 2 years. So I’m sharing a few photos from both years as we approach the 2014 LA Marathon on Sunday.
I have my ultimate goal of a 5 hour marathon and then a few goals if I need it so I don’t get bummed out if I don’t reach the first. As long as I PR which I’m likely to do since my last LAM time was 6:14. I feel more prepared this time but the weather could be/ will be warmer than I want so time adjustments will likely happen. I’m okay with that.
Looking forward to the EXPO tomorrow as Robb and I will be making a tumblr meetup happen !!
Then lots of resting!!
I’m done with running!
….well at least till Sunday. ;-) I just came back from my last run before the LA Marathon.
I squeezed a slower 5k run in at lunch. Weather was cool but the sun was making it’s way out here and there but by the end it was overcast again.
There was a stretch where it was a bit warm so I turned my focus to imagining it will be like this come race day and that lead me to some visualizations about the course and how I will implement my run/walk interval that I have planned. Currently I’ve been running by feel and stopping when I come to a hill or just need a break so it was nice to test out a couple different intervals. I went off and forgot my Galloway timer, which was kind of a drag since it detracted from my focus of thinking about LA but I made it work.
Come race day I think it will work out just fine.
Happy Relaxing!! Happy Camel Day!!
Forgot my stats: 3.15miles in 35:07:26 11:09 pace
LA Marathon Forecast ;-/
I’ve been checking the forecast for the LA Marathon for a few days now and it has not gotten any better. Looks like it will be a warm maybe even hot day. At least I’ll be running towards the beach which will be slightly cooler. If only I ran a 2:20 marathon then I wouldn’t have to worry about it ;-) lol
Time to prepare myself! I’m still ready!
I’ll run my last run today at lunch and appreciate the cool weather here at the beach and hope that the forecast changes for the Big Day!
Evening walk in the rain with our sweet Matilda! She’s such a cutie!!
We are just loving this rain!!
