My 30k Race Plan


I'm running the Table Rock 30k in Marin County, CA on July 22nd!

Let's start with my goals:

1. Have fun.
2. Feel good. (Or as good as I can.)
3. Finish uninjured.

Here is my plan to accomplish all of that...

1. Walk up ALL OF THE HILLS.
2. Take my time.
3. Take a lot of pictures!
4. Mentally, stay in the moment and just take each mile at a time.

That's pretty much all I've got! Here is Flat Megan. She is ready for some trail running!

Like my broken Garmin? Going strong for nearly a year now.
I freaking hold it while I run!
Any tips or words of wisdom for me?

  1. Garmin will send you a new strap for free. All you have to do is call them!

  4. Good luck with your race! I agree with the goal of having fun with it and finishing uninjured. In the end all the races should be fun, it's not like we have too much chance of winning them and even if we do, it is just a race and not our income or anything. I hope you have a GREAT time and can't wait to see the pics.

    At the end of the day you are Megan and you will have the right race for Megan! Just run by instinct/whatever feels right and you will have a great race!

  6. Oh, you already know exactly what to do! Run the mile you're in. Don't think about the next mile until you're in it. Don't forget to look up! Look around you! HAVE FUN! Woohooo!

  7. Ha! I was wondering what you were doing with your watch. So silly, buy a new band girl!! Hope you have a great race and enjoy it all!

  8. Good luck! Whenever I saw I'm walking up hills, my competitive side wants to run up them during the race. My thoughtful, common sense side gets ignored.
