Happy Friday! Tomorrow is Brazos Bend 50! I'm still planning on doing the 50k tomorrow, even though my training has been lackluster. The weird sensation in the back part of my heel is gone. Even though I haven't ran much this cycle, I'm still planning on completing this 50k. Today I'm sharing my goals for Brazos Bend 50k.
Truth be told, I'm not really nervous about the race. Since it is a trail race and there is also a 100k, I literally have all day to finish. Granted, I don't want to be out there for over 12 hours! Last year I ran the 25k. The 50k is 2 loops of that course, I know what to expect.

Goals for Brazos Bend 50k
- Finish. Since this is my first 50k, and my training hasn't been where I want it to be, I'm just shooting for a finish.
- Don't get eaten by a gator.
- Run when I can, but don't be afraid to walk as needed.
- Fuel early and often.
- Have fun!!
Do you make goals for races other than time goals?
