2013 Sub-3:30 Marathon Goal Thread (Read 1378 times)

    Good luck Meggie! When do you start training for Chicago?

     

    I'm going to chime in here since I'm aiming for sub-3:30 in the Chicago Marathon in October. Ideally I'd like to see 3:20 or faster, but my current PR is 3:39, so I'll be happy if I can shave 10 minutes off of that.

            Does that entail putting on shorts and a singlet?

            Well at least someone here is making relevance to the subject.

                No. :-)  Just speed. The name is taken from the Pfitz's plan.

                      Awesome!  That's a fantastic time.  I'm guessing you ran a smart race.  And, congrats on getting a BQ on your first marathon!

                        Great job, David! congratulations on hammering it.

                        So, we'll see you in Boston, then? (way ahead of me, though)

                            Thank you all. I did think of this group's support when I really needed the energy to finish it. I was imagining you all cheering for me. That gave me some extra energy to push myself a bit.

                             

                            Good luck for those in the coming races.
