12/07/2016 Wednesday walks, looking for a race

Well, I was in a bit of a rush this morning and ran out of the house without a jacket or my gear bag.  Consequently, no gear equals no run at lunch.  To keep from being idle today, I am going to do some 10-15 minute walks throughout the day and keep moving as much as possible.  Also, I am going to do some sets of push ups here and there.  Building up motivation keeps mind mind going so I want to capitalize on it.  

Moving forward, I am focused on finding a race now.  I am leaning towards the half marathon distance as I am beginning to think that might be my sweet spot.  Translating my speed over that distance has been doable in the past and I think I can really get my time lower than my PR (1:34 even) if I train hard and pick a flatter race.  The race I've done twice, Franklin Lakes Scenic Half Marathon, is great, but definitely hilly.  I want to go sub 1:25 for a half.

If anyone has any suggestions that aren't too far away, send them to me in the comments sections, on social media, or email.  Nothing too soon either, at least March.  The West Point Half is a possible, if they ever update the site.
