Wisconsin Half: Plans instead of Goals

I survived the death plague, or what others called it, a bad spring cold. What it really meant is I didn’t run for two weeks. I could barely walk up and down the stairs without being horribly winded. I did run the South Shore half two weeks ago. That wasn’t fun.

I had lofty goals for the Wisconsin Half when I registered. I wanted to break the elusive 1:50 barrier and I have not let go of that goal, I have just delayed it for another race (of course I have more races planned). I am in no shape to run that pace right now. Between being lazy and being sick it would be stupid to even try.

At least mother nature has finally decided to give us a peek into spring. Rosie and I had a lovely run by the lake yesterday and I remembered everything I love about running.

Happy pup and beautiful views of Milwaukee and Lake Michigan

My Wisconsin Half plans are have fun, cheer for friends and enjoy the weekend with my visiting friend. We’ll run a half marathon on Saturday morning and then eat and drink our way through Milwaukee. It’s the only way I know how to show visitors a good time. 🙂

I have actual time ideas right now, but don’t want to overthink it. I have 10 days to figure out what to do on race day and knowing me I’ll decide on the drive down to Kenosha.

  1. You have a way better attitude about it than I do. I’m all “I quit” .. I’ll take note from this post. Good luck, looking forward to seeing you on one of the turnarounds!

    1. Don’t worry. I had those negative thoughts. Waited to write anything until I could be more positive. Plus I’m just super excited my best friend will be in town. See you it there.

  2. Awww I hope you had a great race!! Late winter BAD cold kicked my marathon plans in the butt. It’s tough dealing with set backs like that.
