- As always to have fun and have a positive race
- To have my best time for the year (one good thing about a slow half in Feb. is it makes this more possible)
- I want to run all my miles under 10 minutes including that hilly one near the end (last year my last 3 miles were in the tens)
- I want to be as close to 2:05 as possible
- I want there to be the same delicious brownies as part of the post race food that they had last year
- I want to end it thinking I do want to run the two halves I am already registered before the end of May
- I want to have enough energy left for a bike ride in the afternoon
- I want someone to say to me as I am running, "Aren't you the amazing swimmer I have seen at the pool at 5:45 a.m.?
- To celebrate the fact that this is my 20th half marathon
Okay some of these are silly goals (but truly I would love to have them happen) but what fun are goals without some silliness? Or at least that is my belief for today. I will go back and highlight the ones I am most serious about.
On to Saturday and a great race. I know Jill and Johann are running halves too. Good luck to all of us and may we all enjoy our races! Plus good luck to all the Boston runners come Monday especially Marlene who is as excited as anyone out there!
Last year running over the bike bridge- there were huge vibrations I
had never felt before as one of just a few runners or
Huge snowstorm last year a few days before the
race. They changed the route some and
moved snow from portions of
the bike path
No worries about snow THIS year.
