Half Marathon Checklist: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue

No, I’m not getting married again; I’m running a half marathon. You mean this saying only applies to weddings?

I’m officially counting down to The Atlanta Half Marathon on Thanksgiving morning and making sure I’ve got my necessities crossed off my list.

Something Old
I will be running in the same kicks running shoes I wore a few weeks ago when I ran the Marine Corps Marathon.

They’re old, but they not that old; they still have plenty of mileage left to carry me 13.1.

Something New
I’m going for a PR. Running a marathon right before you run a half gives you lots of confidence, a strong belief in yourself that you might not have had before. Since my last half marathon time was 3:01 I’m pretty sure I’m going to knock that out of the park beat that, but will I pull out a 2:30 like I hope? We’ll know on Thursday …

Something Borrowed
My playlist. You lovely people gave me an awesome playlist that I didn’t use, gasp, during my marathon. I’m sorry, I was busy tweeting, picture taking, chatting, oh, and running. This time I’m running by myself so I will be rockin’ the tunes. If you have any other must hear songs please do let me know in the comments.

Something Blue

Ok, so it’s black with blue trim but I’ll still be one Badass Mother Runner wearing this motivational technical long sleeve tee. Those fabulous Run Like A Mother ladies did it again with their line of shirts. It’s a toss up - this one and “Are My Kids Still Chasing Me?” are my faves.

So, I think I’m ready … for everything but the rain. There’s a 50 percent chance on Thursday. Anyone got some good moves for my rain dance?

Winks & Smiles,

You will ROCK it! I wore my "Badass Mother Runner for my most recent 1/2 in Maine 2 weeks ago and got my PR!

The shirt definitely helped!

I will be running my first 5K that Thursday morning and I an excited. Hopefully next year I will be running the half marathon.

Caroline said...

Love the shirt!! Those gals are my favcrite!!! Would not be registered for my first half without their book and FB page! all the best to you!!!

Eryn said...

I love that shirt. I recently went to a RLAM event in my hometown, and bought the tshirt. I 'm kicking myself for not getting this one!

I'll be running the half on Thursday too. I hope to PR (well post-baby PR anyway) here because I was kind of sick during the Silver Comet Half a few weeks ago. I couldn't pull it out like I wanted to. Good luck to you in your PR attempt!

I ordered that shirt weeks ago and I'm still waiting for mine. I don't run in untested stuff so even if it comes I can't wear it. :(

I do not leave a great deal of remarks, however after reading some of the
remarks here "Half Marathon Checklist: Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue".

I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Could it be only me or do some of the responses come across like they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other places, I'd like to keep up with you.
Could you post a list of every one of all your social sites like
your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
