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.
Several South Carolina teams are competing in the Wendy's Invitational Saturday in Charlotte at McAlpine Park. ncrunners.com previews the races.
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.
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.
