So somehow, in a moment of lucidity (not) I agreed to be a pace group leader for the marathon clinic. Not that I was planning on running a marathon in May but I figured it would be good training for halfs and shorter distances. So far, I have not gotten the group lost (which is a miracle in itself) and I haven’t had anyone protesting about paces, yet. Many things are decided by group consensus and we have been pretty flexible so far. We will see how the weeks unfold.
I don’t have any particular marathon aspirations this year. My goal is to run Boston next year and run a pb. My running goals for this year:
1. Actually have fun running! (not that I don’t always, but it’s nice to run with no huge marathon goals for the year)
2. Run a PB in the First Half (sub 1:40 or better)
3. Run a 10km pb
4. Improve on my 5km time. (I think I ran a PB in the Resolution Run…but since there was no official chip timing, and the course was a little short, it’s kind of hard to tell:p)
5. Run in at least one relay this year.
