    Thanks.  This article is a good read.  Half marathon time 4 years ago was 1:44 and change.  Ran the last 7 miles with a lot of IT band pain though...wasn't really properly trained.  My most recent 10k was 42:07 last May.  I'm going to use the 1/2 I run on April 28th to gauge pacing and what's a reality.  Obviously my goal starts with getting to the starting line and finishing the race.  Beyond that, sub 4 hours would be my time goal right now and based on the half I run I'll try to define a possible stretch goal.

    2019:  Run my first marathon.
