As you know by now, my first ever half marathon is this Sunday, May 15th.
When I started training, I thought that my main goal would be to just cross the finish line.
Of course, after 16 weeks I have some more specific goals in mind:
C Goal: 2:20 (should be doable despite the forecast rain and 40KPH wind)
B Goal: Sub 2:20 (not out of reach, it is a 6:38/KM pace which slower than our 6:37 pace during our practice run on course)
A Goal: 2:15 (this is the real goal. The one that C is aiming for as this is her repeat half marathon)
A+ Goal: Sub 2:15 (The secret, I'm pretty sure I can do it if I just hang on and RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACE! goal)
No matter what, this race is a Personal Best.
It is a reward for committing to the training and for running (nearly) every training run.
I can't wait!
