Race goals. After the great foot pain of November, I had decided not to have a time goal for this race. Fast forward to the great mock-a-than , and I got to thinking differently. I was only a minute off from my actual PR and didn't feel taxed until the last mile when I was just running to be done. Without further ado, here are my race goals.
Goal D: Finish the race with a smile on my face. Ok, I might not FINISH the race with a smile, but I hope to be wearing one for 98% of the 13.1 miles.
Goal C: Finish under 9 minute pace. I tried to shoot for right under 9 mm in my long runs for this training.
Goal B: PR. Run faster than 1:54:39 (8:44 pace set in the Sioux Falls 1/2 Marathon in September).
Goal A: Run an 8:30 pace (1:51:26 ish).
Goal A++ (aka. Insane Pants): Sub 1:50. Miss Julie seems to think I can do it, so we'll throw it out there just for fun.
And now some pics of my adorable nephew, Harrison, and his little buddy, Mason.
Today I'm headed to the expo and to some ice sculpture show that's supposed to be crazy cool. Hopefully my mind will be stimulated enough so I forget I'm running a half marathon tomorrow. Ahem. Have a good day ya'll. [Had to throw in the ya'll.....]
