Nike Women’s Half
The weekend has finally arrived and the Nike Women’s Half is here!!! I went to the “expotique” last night and it was not what I expected. I knew it would be different, but wasn’t aware that you could get your hair blown out or have a make-over by Bare Minerals! I did not do either one, but enjoyed walking around and trying to win a pair of new shoes.
They had this neon lit map of the course and a guy that was dedicated to taking pictures of people in front of it.
After I made my way through the expo, I walked up to the Nike store in Georgetown to check out the race apparel. Nothing was for sale at the expo, you had to go to store to buy it all which makes sense. A bunch of people were in line to purchase the limited edition Nike Free We Run D.C. sneakers. They are great looking, but I didn’t want them badly enough to get in line early in the evening for them. I think they sold out within 10 minutes!
I bought a bright orange shirt with purple writing (no picture), it was the best color combination of all the tees.
I’m literally bursting with excitement at my desk as I think about Sunday. I’ve seen this on other blogs – 3 time goals that I have in mind. This is my 3rd half marathon. My PR is from the first – I went 2 seconds slower on my second and I’d like to think I trained smarter and harder for this one that I really can reach goal #1.
1. Go under 2 hours – 1:59:59 would be amazing!
3. My first and best time is 2:04:22 – I would be happy with 2:03
The weather looks like it’s going to cooperate perfectly for the race and I cannot wait to run through the beautiful streets of D.C. once again.
Good luck to all the runners running this race and all races this weekend!
