Road2Hope Half Marathon Goals
Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, children of all ages
After much deliberation, consolation, postulation, inspiration, hesitation and perspiration I’ve finally decided on a race plan for Sunday’s Road2Hope half marathon.
Short version: I’m going to shoot for a 1:45
Long version: Go get a coffee this could take a minute to get through….The feedback from my pacing inquiry a few days ago was split 50/50. Half of you suggested I take it easy, then make a push near the end if I was feeling good, the other half called me out and told me to go for it. Essentially, it came down to my gut. When I decided to actually RACE this half (instead of merely running it) the idea was to see what I was capable of; to dig deep, to push my limits and leave everything out on the course. To do this I can’t just back away from a time that scares me, it’s time to step up.
With that being said, it’s time to set the definitive list:
A – 1:45 (5:00 min/km)
B – 1:50 (5:15min/km)
C – 1:52:30 (My current HM best although it is from 2008)
D – Don’t poop myself (always a plus, stolen from Claire)
OK, maybe it wasn’t that long, but at least now you have a coffee: you’re welcome
As with any race prediction/result; If I hit my goal I’ll do a happy dance, and if I don’t it makes for good blog material.
Wish me luck!
