Subject: RE: Gasparilla Distance Classic Half Marathon : Official Thread
I'm doing the half. It will be my third. My first one was a trail run half in November. My second is The Florida Challenge technical trail run half on 1/30. The run is by far my weakest tri event so I've been a running fool in the off season. I'm on track for completing the 100 runs in 100 days challenge on a different triathlon forum. I hope to shave several minutes off my run for this seasons tris. And I have to be able to easily do a half because I'm doing the Florida 70.3 on May 15th as my first half IM. All anyone I talk to who has done the FL 70.3 says is that the run is very difficult, and if you think you know how difficult it's going to be then your wrong. It's more difficult than that.
So the Gasparilla Half is just one piece of the plan to get there.I think my wife, two kids, and myself are also going to do the 5K on Saturday. I'm going to do it if they do.JayEdited by Jay G 2011-01-18 7:04 AM
