This coming Saturday is the Mississippi Blues Marathon in Jackson, MS. That means this is race week! I wanted to get in a 10 mile run this weekend, but I managed to get a nasty stomach bug Friday that is still lingering around. Hopefully I will be over it completely tomorrow. I’m hydrating like crazy so we will see.

As far as goals go for the race, I will be happy with anything between 3:45 and 4:05. My first Marathon I ran in 3:50 and I would love to get close to that time.

Be sure to follow me on twitter (@vonralls) for updates on the race, expo, and trip down there. We will be leaving Friday afternoon.
