- Goal A: Finish! This is bare minimum and short of some sort of serious injury or passing out ... I WILL finish. This one is really not debateable.
- Goal B: under 2:20. I have never run a significant distance over a 10:40 pace and even with the lack of training I don't see it happening here. If I get attacked by the stomach issues again this could throw a wrench in things. But otherwise, I don't see that it could take me longer than 2:20 to finish this race. Even though I haven't trained for this, I will be disappointed if it takes me longer than this.
- Goal C: under 2:10. This is really where I see myself finishing. This is a 9:54 pace. I know I CAN run it alot faster than this, but this is not ideal conditions. Usually I can run forever at a 9:30 - 9:50 pace, so I'm hoping I can do that here.
- Goal D: under 2:00. Honestly I'd have to pull off some kind of miracle to make this one happen. This is a 9:10 pace and I'm just not in good enough shape to pull this off right now. It's still a goal of mine to finish under 2 hours, and I'm quite capable, but I do have to put in the training to achieve this. Right now I don't deserve it. But I can still dream.
Have a great weekend!
