5. Lastly, My Boston Goals! Be kind…sharing race goals is a little scary!
I have started every marathon too slowly (I might be the only runner with this problem!). Negative splits are good, but I had a 15 minute negative split in Chicago. So, I’m going to trust my training and get into my goal pace sooner rather than later.
- A goal: BQ (sub 3:40)
- B goal: sub 4:00
- C goal: finish! If I’m having a really off day, I plan to slow down, high-five, kiss the girls, and have fun!!
I’m not a great runner…I just love to run. I have a few nerves, but mostly I’m excited and curious for the experience. This is BOSTON and I refuse to have a bad race!
Happy Friday to all of you and CHOOSE JOY!
