Fitness Friday: "race" goals

I'm running a little half marathon tomorrow morning, the Martian Half in Dearborn, MI. When I signed up many months ago, I was just looking at this race as a training run with bling. It has a great medal, it fit into my Bayshore training, and I've wanted to run it for a few years.

My last few long runs have been stellar and had me thinking of great things for this race. But, if there's anything the past few days have shown me it's that there is so much outside of my control right now.

So, instead of setting race goals related to time, pace, or PRs, I'm setting THIS as my race goal for tomorrow:

Oh, and bring home a cute, little alien in the process.

See you on the flip side!
