          Hi, I'm new to the group. I'll be doing the Auckland Half Marathon on the 28th of October in Auckland, New Zealand (www.aucklandmarathon.co.nz). In preparation, I'm also aiming to do a 10k at the Devonport Classic on the 23rd of September (www.devonportclassic.co.nz), also in Auckland, NZ. Samantha

            New to the group and new to the half marathon.  Currently, just working on building a solid base and follow a plan for beginners.  I am just hoping to finish without injury.

              Your training looks solid, and you've got a couple months to get the base miles laid down for your first half marathon.

              Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

                  Race: : A Night of Miles

                  Event URL:  http://www.townoflitchfield.org/Pages/LitchfieldCT_Rec/RoadRaces/nightmiles

                  Distance:  1 Mile

                  Location: Litchfield, CT USA

                  Goal: 5:10.00

                   

                  Just something fun to do. $2 for a timed mile on a Mondo track, about 30 mins from my house. Can't pass it up. Time goal is a total guess.

                   

                  Date: July 28

                  Real goal is revenge on this PW course!

                   

                  Date: October 21

                  Race: : Baystate Marathon

                  Event URL:  http://www.baystatemarathon.com/

                  Distance:  26.2 Miles

                  Location: Lowell, MA USA

                  Goal: ?

                   

                  Unretiring from marathons (I did my one and only so far back in 2000). Goal TBD - right now in the 3:00 to 3:10 range, but that's a pretty big range, and I think maybe I'm wussing out, but can't bring myself - yet - to write something on the lower end of that range or better. I think I can, but it's also a "first" marathon again of sorts, so we'll see.

                  Come all you no-hopers, you jokers and rogues
                  We're on the road to nowhere, let's find out where it goes

                    Probably, maybe, the last 2 to add for me for the year:

                     

                    Date: Aug 21

                    Race: : A Night of Miles 2

                    Event URL:  http://www.townoflitchfield.org/Pages/LitchfieldCT_Rec/RoadRaces/nightmiles

                    Distance:  1 Mile

                    Location: Litchfield, CT USA

                    Goal: 4:59.99...what the heck, why not?

                     

                    Date: Sept 13

                    Race: : King of the Hill

                    Event URL: www.uwwesternct.org/koth

                    Distance:  "5K"

                    Location: Danbury, CT USA

                    Goal: 17:30...still

                     

                    Course is new...and runs right past my office window. These are the streets I run every day at lunch, sometimes twice a day - so defending the home turf here, to be king of the corporate sloths. I'd be lying if I said I didn't want to win this thing (always depends on who shows up, but still).

                     

                    MTA: based on the map, I'm guessing this course is waaay short, like 2.7miles. So, we'll just go with "win" as goal.

                      Throwing a 5K in to test myself and keep me speedy Smile

                        Hi all!

                         

                        I'm new to this group, and happy to be here!  

                         

                        So I was toying with the idea of running the inaugural HM in Princeton NJ this November, but it sold out 3 mos early!  inaugural!  Then I saw the Trenton half...its a flatter course anyway, and who wouldn't want to run across the "Trenton Makes the World Takes" bridge?

                         

                        Sign me up as follows:

                         

                        Date: Nov 10

                        Race: : Trenton Half Marathon

                        Event URL:  http://www.trentonhalf.com/

                        Distance: 13.1 Miles

                        Location: Trenton, NJ USA

                        Goal: 1:30

                         

                        I've run a few HMs before, mostly in the 1:40 range, and I feel like I'm tracking ahead of those...just need to stay healthy and get the pace up a little.

                         

                        Seeya around.

                          Date: Sept 29

                          Race: Flatlanders

                          Location: Regina, SK. CANADA

                          Goal: Under 65 minutes.

                            So I won't be doing this:

                            and will be doing this instead, trying for a shot at 2 hours:

                              Calendar is updated...please scan to check I've got everything hunky-dory.

                              Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

                                I have a correction to make on one of my Park & Rec10K's. One isn't there, because I probably forgot to include it; but the one that is there has the finish time of the other...I think.

                                 

                                The missing one was the St' Paddy's Day 10K 3/17/12 and I ran 57:23

                                 

                                I ran the Memorial Day 10K 5/28/12 in 55:37

                                Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.
