Three Goals for Half Marathon #7
I'm running half marathon #7 on Sunday morning! The second to last race of 2013. It's the Route 66 race in Tulsa, and I'm really excited to do this one because it's on my race bucket list. I've heard this is a beautiful course, and the medals are awesome. Like, these medals win awards awesome. (And yes, I realize the irony of a medal getting a medal.)
Anyway, for this race I have 3 goals. I'm not self-important enough to think you actually care about my race goals and times and all that (although maybe I am since I'm writing this), but I like writing them down and going back to look at them later.
I'm following the good, great, awesome method I told you about last time.
Good: Don't walk the hills
Last time I was not prepared for the hills, but Tulsa is known to be a hilly course, so this time I'm going to be ready. At the very least, I want to run all the way through the hills and keep a positive attitude about it. No dry heaving for me!
Great: Under 2 hours
Even if it's not a PR, I will be very happy with a sub-2 half marathon. It was one of my 2013 goals, after all.
Awesome: Half marathon PR (1:56 or under) and/or 1:55 or under
1:55 was my goal for my last half, and we all know how that turned out. I'd still love to go under 1:55, and I know I have it in me. Maybe this will be the one! If not, I'd love to PR. Race recap to come. Hopefully it won't involve any port-a-potty stops! Cross your fingers for me.
P.S. It's apparently going to be freeeezing this weekend. Like, snow and sleet and rain and possible death by hypothermia, so my SUPER goal #4 is to stay alive. Mom, don't worry. I'll be wearing leggings and ear muffs.
