I created this as a separate page but figured I’d share it on my home page as a post as well.

I feel quite excited for my new attempted PRs for 2012… I know I’ll achieve a marathon one since it will be my first. B Hopefully, there is no DNF in my 2012 future and I can finish with my goal time of 4 hours or less. B I hope that’s reasonable. B I have little faith in beating my half marathon time. B To this day I still have no idea how I managed that. B My training runs were at 8 miles and I only got in a few 10 milers before the big day. B I was freezing cold during that whole race and I think I kept running to try to warm up. B I have a small goal time of less than 1:37 just so I can qualify for the NYC half, but I am not getting my hopes up on this. My 10K PR goal is more of a side project. B My local town (city) has this one race every year and I always participate because I try to support as many local races as I can, being that there’s only one race, that’s not too hard. B It’ll be my post DC Marathon recovery run with hopefully improved speed from the year before.
I don’t see much 5Ks in my future, because I’m cheap, they’re slightly pricey. B Races fees already have a higher portion of my budget than even clothes (okay that’s a lie) so I should monitor it a little more prudently and focus on races I can really work on.
