Goals for 2014
Pr in a half marathon.
This will be tough. I plan to run the “Love Run” and really kick off the new year with an excellent time. I’m following this plan to achieve this goal.
Break 1 hour in the Broad Street run.
This is my favorite down hill race. I run it every year with my dad. Breaking 1 hour would be incredible, and I’m very close. I would only need to shave off 2 minutes from my time and have perfect weather… It might happen…
Win the Sloppy Cuckoo Half Marathon race.
I’ve come in 3rd and 4th place in this race for a few years now. I would love to win to this race overall. 2014 is going to be the year of speed. I guess it’s just a matter of who shows up that day and what the pace is like.
Age group in the Blues Cruise 50K.
I learned so much running a 50M race last year. I plan to use that knowledge and apply it to a 50K. I’m not far from an age group. With some more speed and better pacing, I will pull this off too.
Some of these goals are extremely difficult. I’ll be happy if I accomplish ONE of them. If I put the time in I don’t see any reason why I won’t. I hope that 2014 is a good year!
UPDATE: I have failed every goal… 🙁 Well, better luck next year? I did learn from my mistakes. I realized I need to do more strength training. In late races I find I get tired legs. I have built up a great cardio base, so now it’s time to build some strength.
