After my last half marathon, I decided that if I want to break 2 hrs I will need to run with a pace setter. Starting with the 2 hr pace group at my last race made me realize that if I am going to break 2 hrs, then it will be running with a pace person.
I started this post in December of 2013, but never posted it. Initially, I wanted to break this time in early 2014, however we got to well, moving and early 2014 was a clusterf$%k.
From the draft that I started, “I am starting to train to break my PR on February 2nd. I will be running a race, I am just not sure which one just yet.” This is a very telling quote. At that point in 2013 I knew there was a significant possibility that we would relocate to Arizona, however we had not told anyone yet.
