Twin Lobster Half Marathon

After years of going back and forth with myself, I finally committed to running a half marathon. Finally! T-minus 13 weeks until the big race. I am working on formulating a training plan with my friend Mugsy who signed up too (with only a slight amount of peer pressure from me).

Friends who long run together, stay together. Mugsy and I have done a bunch of race together and she has run a half in the past so I am looking forward to tackling this race with her and apparently wearing pink. races

My training plan will be heavily focused on getting milage in but will also include designated swim and bike days because…yeah…I am doing a triathlon in 10 weeks too.

Now, back to the half! I have been researching races around me for ever now and there are so many good ones to choose from. So how did I pick the Twin Lobster Half Marathon? My reasons are as follows, in order:

1) The name. I love lobster. I love two lobsters that look alike even more!

2) The location. Of course this is important! I don’t want to have to get up before the sun rises to drive forever to a race then run forever then drive forever home again. This race is all of 19 minutes away from home. Bed to start line in 30 minutes tops!

3) The route. 13.1 miles of mostly flat and fast (according to the event website) along the ocean…yeah, twist my arm. Even if it takes me 4 hours, at least I’ll have some beautiful views along the way.

I am really looking forward to this race but I am not setting any particular time goals. This is my first half and falls a mere three weeks after a triathlon so finishing is my ultimate goal. Finishing then getting brunch with Mugsy…that’s my ultimate goal!

Who wants to run with me??

Run with me!
