After the RNR Denver Half I am feeling even more determined to get the sub-2 hour half under my belt. So after searching all lunch I found one that I don’t have to fly or drive for a gazillion hours to. It’s right up the road from me in Loveland.
Yep, I just went ahead and registered myself for the Heart of the Rockies Half Marathon which is in three weeks! That gives me a bit of time to get in some speed sessions and two more longer runs. I’m not going to have the sea level advantage and I haven’t seen what the course elevation is but Loveland is about the same elevation as Longmont (lower than Denver) and from what I remember from the two months we lived in Loveland, it’s flat as a pancake. We’re even going to run right by the condo we lived in. I’m sure there will be a few hills in there somewhere but I’m looking forward to it. Maybe I’ll even talk Josh into running the 10k while I do the half. Hopefully we won’t have snow or ice. That would just be crummy. I am all for temps in the 30s or 40s though. My best runs are in those cooler temperatures.
Never done two races this close together but hey, it’s almost like training right?
