          May 4th

          Decatur Steeple Chase 8k

          This is my 4th year running this one, it was my very first race, hope to beat last year's time of 39:36 .

           

          May 27th

          Cotton Row 10k(registered), and maybe the 5k(not registered yet). My goal is to beat last year's time of 55:04, ultimately hope to break 49:30 in the 10k. If I do the 5k, it will be for fun or maybe to pace a forumite.

           

          Also have a FE planned.


          Muddling through

            date - your name - name of race - goal (any goal, even if it's to finish/have fun/not die)

             

            And don't forget to come back and give us the results. Now, go:

            May 26 - wcrunner2 - Bob Potts Marathon - goal (supported long run as training for a fall ultra)

             

            It will also be my first marathon in over 18 years, my last one being a DNF due to stomach cramps. The last marathon I finished was in 1981 so this wil be a huge PW for me regardless of how well I run. I estimate it will be my slowest by more than 90 minutes and possibly by as much as 2 hours if the temps and humidity are bad.

            2014 Goals: Run first trail ultra, first 100K, and see what I can do in a 24-Hour race


            Don't call me Buttercup!

              May 5 - Frederick Half Marathon (first HM ever)

               

              Basic goal - finish upright and smiling.

               

              Really hoping for sub 2:45, but will honestly be happy with sub 3 hours.   If I go more than 3 hours, something will have gone wrong, and I probably will not be upright and smiling at the finish.

              Slow and steady wins the....  wait a second! I've been lied to!
