Last Saturday morning kicked off my official training for the Oklahoma City Half Marathon. While I have done the marathon there twice, both times with not-so-great results, I'm not ready to tackle a marathon there again just yet. I'm not sure when I'll be ready to tackle a marathon again period. Although, someday I do plan to go back to OKC and run that marathon in under four hours and give it everything I have. Someday. Not just yet. For now I have zero interest in running any marathon, although I am putting my name in the lottery for NYC again. I'm leaving that one up to fate.
Instead, I am training for the OKC Half, if I can't yet get redemption for my full marathons there, I can at least go down and tackle the half marathon. And aim for a PR, likely a lofty PR given my recent runnings. But that's a different post for a different day.
For now, basically I just wanted to post some pretty pictures that I took on our refreshing and beautiful group training run Saturday morning. We have chosen to do our long runs along the river area which makes me a very happy girl. It's hands down my favorite spot to run in this city. I am training with a fantastic group of gals and we all plan to run the half. I'm very much looking forward to the training and race, more so than any training or race in recent history.
