Set goals and make them happen. With another race coming up, I’ve got my eyes (and legs) set on these goals for the Rock’n’Roll San Antonio Half Marathon.

My twelfth half marathon and my last race of the year is coming up this weekend! Last race of the year–when did that happen? The speed of time passing aside, I’m pretty excited to run the Rock’n’Roll San Antonio Half. It’ll be my second Rock’n’Roll race, and I’ve heard it’s a great one.
I took all of 2017 to refocus on enjoying running vs. pushing for PRs, and this race is no different. That said, I do have a few goals in mind for my final race of the year.
Stick with my run/walk plan. I’ve been training with Jeff Galloway’s Run/Walk method and have been really enjoying it. I ran my first race with run/walk intervals back in September. I finished that race feeling super strong, so I decided to stick with it for this training cycle. I plan on running the first two miles, then switching to intervals (4:00 run/:30 walk), and running the entire last mile.
Run a sub 2:00. I haven’t run a sub-two hour marathon in quite a while. I’m not looking to PR this race (my half marathon PR is 1:53:40 set in 2015), but I would really like to see a 1 at the start of my finish time.
Have fun! I have this goal for every race. Why do it if it’s not fun, right? I plan to take in the San Antonio scenery, enjoy the course, and rock out to the music–it’s a Rock’n’Roll Race after all!
