      Goal races only?

      I'm in for Disney on 1/7 and NJ on 4/29.

      But no specific goal for either.

      AceHarris


        Charleston Half, 1/13/2018, Goal: 1:25:00. May adjust if weather is hot.

         

        Knoxville 26.2, 3/25/2018, Goal: We'll see, definitely Sub 3:20:00 for now, will adjust as race gets closer.

        Road Mile: 5:19 (2017), 5k: 18:10 (2017), 10k: 38:25 (2017, course was 6.1), HM: 1:25:16 (2018), M: 2:57:18 (2018)

            But no specific goal for either.

             

            All races.  You can have a goal for a race (i.e. "inebriation") without it being a goal race.

            Everyone's gotta running blog; I'm the only one with a POOL-RUNNING blog.

                The Biggest Little Half Marathon 4/14/18 A goal: Sub-90. B goal age group award?

                Chicago Marathon 10/7/18 A Goal 3:07 or a guarenteed entry to 4/20/20. B goal: there isn't one. The only goal is to get into 4/20/20.

                Annual Mileage goal: 2,018. PR by about 400 miles.
