I’m coming into the home stretch of my training for my next half marathon, the Craft Classic, here in Arizona this October. I’ve got 6 weeks left, which seems crazy to me!
I had an insane July with back to back work trips, which made for inconsistent training. That combined with the Arizona heat has left me feeling less than at the top of my game.
One key that I am still missing is hill training. I got in some hill training on a recent weekend trip in Northern Arizona, and also last weekend at Ragnar Colorado. I am hereby vowing that after Labor Day I will start incorporating one hill workout a week (where, I am not sure!). Plus I want to get in 1-2 long runs up in Fountain Hills, where the race is.
Recently, I attended a local craft beer festival (I told you, I'm a junkie!) - and I met one of the organizers from the Craft Classic! So cool. I scored one of their awesome shirts.
As a reminder, here is the big draw for this race:
Be on the lookout for “social runs” in the area. You can see some of the course, get to know some fellow runners and of course, enjoy some delicious craft beer after!

Cheers to the last 6 weeks of training...good luck to all of you running!
