This week is a step-back week in my training, and it’s coming at the perfect time. Not only have I been icing my knee all weekend, I think my mind needs a little rest from the long run before I up the mileage next week.
Mann senior Laura Miller improved her time at McAlpine Park in Charlotte from last season to win the Wendy's Invitational race with a top time of the meet for 2012 of 17 minutes, 47 seconds. The time, a personal best, is currently 47th in the nation.

Intro: Last night, after I submitted my journal for Week 5, I was on my laptop, when I kept coming across a race called the Ramblin’ Rose half-marathon in Charlotte, N.C., which isn’t too far from me. I thought about it for all of five seconds before registering. I’m already registered for two more half-marathons before the full, but the first isn’t until October—forever away! Despite the fact that I had to pay late registration (yikes), it seemed like the perfect way to get my mileage in and experience race day at the same time.
