Getting Ready for the 1/2

I'm officially registered! YES! I'm so ready to run. I'm also excited to meet up with some fellow bloggin' friends who are running: KimPossible, KC Tri Chick and Run to Finish. Anybody else?

I've got some things to do this week to prepare and perhaps you can help me out. I haven't quite decided what I want to pace out at this weekend, but I'm thinking a 9 min/mile. I want to save my PR for the Lincoln Marathon which is 8:30 min/mile. So, do you have any suggestions to add to my playlist to pace me at a 9 min/mile??

Some tunes already in my 1/2 Marathon Playlist are:
Faster Kill Pussycat
Lose Yourself
Untouched
Jai Ho
155
Love Lockdown


Today's workout: 1250 yd swim, 45 min spin, 3 mile run, abs, weights.

Good luck in the race, I must be getting old I only listen to running/triathlon podcast's when I run.

Good luck with the race this weekend! I'm not much help in tune selection. I never use an Ipod during a race. Too distracting for me.

Hey...if you're not coming in til around 8...were you going to plan on sticking around after the half marathon or were we all going to meet race morning?

While I am such a huge disco momma, I gotta share that "rock the cradle of love" by Billy Idol is a good one for a faster pace. Then again, don't forget I run at a pace of around 11ish!!
Have a great time!
I feel myself healing every moment and can't wait to put Billy Idol to work for me!
