I ran with the St. Croix Valley Runners again today. It was a small group since tomorrow is the Red Wing River City Ramble 1/2 Marathon.
Next weekend is the Gopher to Badger 1/2 Marathon and a few people are doing that one. G to B is the race I am getting ready for. My training is going well and I think if the weather is good I should do OK. Today I had a great run, 5 miles in 39 minutes for under 8 min miles. If I want to break 1:45, and I do, this is how fast I'll need to run.
My Hammer Visor is here! I ran in it once and it held back the sweat. I was going to run with it today, but didn't want to try something new while running with others. I knew I'd push myself to keep up with the faster runners so I didn't want anything like visor issues slowing me down. But I did try a Chocolate Hammer gel and it was good, but I just don't like chocolate when running. Banana was good after being in my shorts pocket an hour, warm like when you microwave a banana. And Hammer Tropical was very good. I bought the Hammer gel sampler kit with the visor and I am having fun trying new flavors.
