#RunCMM Course Revealed!

Disclaimer:  As a Rock 'n' Blog ambassador I will receive free registration in exchange for my promotion of the event.  As always, all opinions are expressed are 100% my own.

The wait is over - our friends over at the Rock 'n' Roll series announced the course map for the St. Jude Country Music Marathon and 1/2 presented by Nissan!  I am so excited to be returning to my state capital to run this course in just 12 weeks!!


My friend Kristan and I were checking it out yesterday and it looks like the first half of the course is the same as the final part of last year's Women's Running Half so we should be running on familiar ground!

She and I are taking a different approach to our training for this race.  I am not gunning for a major PR like I was for New Orleans, but rather I'd like to run a personal best for a Nashville race.  I'm not sure if I've told you but Nashville is a pretty hilly city!  I have run a major race in Nashville twice now with my best time being 2:30, so that's the time I'm aiming to beat in April.   We are incorporating some hill work in our training schedule this time in hopes that will help us improve our time.  I guess we'll see how that goes!!

My fellow #RunCMMers - what do you think of the course???  It's not too late to register if you want to join in on the fun - just don't forget to use my code KSMITHRUNS for $10 off!
