With this race looming so close, I spend a lot of time thinking about my goals.
Goal 1: Finish
Goal 2: Finish with not my slowest time ever
Goal 3: If and ONLY if I am feeling good, push myself in the second half and try to finish under 2:10:00
That is it. I may be ready to run a half marathon but it is still only April. I do not want to face getting hurt and having to deal with a nagging injury for the rest of the year. I just want to go out, and have a good fun race. I want to enjoy the expo, enjoy the night before. No nerves. If I'm not happy with my performance there is always June, or September. This is only the beginning.
Saturday I ran twelves miles. And although it was not fast I covered the distance and felt great afterwards. I am more than ready for this race. I am not in the best shape but I am in good shape. Things can only get better from here on out.
But it still won't hurt to wish me luck!
