Races – Past, Present, Future

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

Goals for 2012

10K PR under 0:50

Half Marathon under 1:40

Full Marathon under 4 hours!

Upcoming Races

Mar. 17, 2012 – Washington DC – Full Marathon

Mar. 24, 2012 – Boston – 10K

Apr. 15, 2012 – Boston Marathon!!!!

May 27, 2012 – Boston Run to Remember – Half marathon

Aug. 19, 2012 – Providence, RI – Half Marathon

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.

  1. I also signed up for Boston Run to Remember, the course looks great, and it would be my first visit to Boston. My goal is < 2 hours, hopefully the course is flatter the new york city streets.

    1. It’s really flat! The course kind of does a double loop on the side of the charles river but it moves fast! The best part is that there are no corrals, so no waiting to start. There’s one time bridge across the charles (very tiny compared to NYC bridges) and you take the same bridge on your return of the loop. The best part are the last 2 miles when you run through beacon hill (The flat street) and the financial district in empty streets! So much fun!
