For a hot minute or two I didn't think I'd be able to register for The Cocoa Classic Half Marathon on April 6th. Funds were tight and the cost is no joke; although the cost does include a hooded zip-up sweatshirt, a knit cap, a travel mug and chocolate at the finish line.

Mostly, I just want to finish strong knowing I have actually trained for this one. Training is key. And knowing that my legs can do this is half the battle.
Speaking of training...somehow I screwed up my plan so I am a week ahead of schedule. I will turn to you all for advice. I'm running twelve miles this Sunday. Then next week I taper, then the week after that is the race. Except, somehow I messed it up and the actual race is THREE weeks away, not two. So, what do I do? Shorter distance this week and then long run next week and then taper and then race? Do my long run this week, then somewhat shorter run next week, then taper then race? Any thoughts?
The weather is supposed to be nice today and tomorrow, kinda crappy Sunday and Monday, then head back into nice for the rest of the week. Let's hope it stays that way!
