Today is THE. BIG. DAY. I will be competing in my first ever half marathon! To say that I am excited is an understatement!
I thought I would take this opportunity to share my goals for the event with you. I actually have 3 goals. An A goal, a B goal and a C goal. I can’ take credit for the idea of setting 3 goals. I actually stole it from another runner who mentioned it during a recent #RunChat. Like most runners, I usually just have one goal for each race. However, having only one goal can lead to disappointment when the goal is not accomplished. And to be honest, I don’t want anything to detract from the accomplishment of training for and completing my first half marathon.
So here are my goals!
A. Finish the half marathon in 2:30 hours or less. Before my knee issue, I was running at a pace that made this goal very feasible!
B. Finish the half marathon in 3 hours or less. This was my goal time when I first signed up for the race.
C. Finish my first half marathon!
In case you are curious, my race number is #33262 and I will be in corral #33 with my hubby who’s race number is #33435. All lucky numbers in my opinion! If you want to spend a couple bucks to track our progress during the race through your cell phone, click here.
At the end of the race, the hubby and I will both be proud owners of one of these! Can’t wait!!!
