Until I make a total fool of myself at the Myrtle Beach Marathon. I used the Runner's World training calculator today and according to the distance and time I'm running now, this says I should finish the 13.1 miles in 3:02:31. Being very competitive and of course a control freak, I've already made a personal note to finish in under 3 hours.
And of course since I'm a freak I've pretty much got my year mapped out next year of races I'm doing. I'm going to post them here, so that if any of you wants to join me in any of these, you're welcome to! I'm shooting for at least one race per month leading up to the big enchilada in December 2010. So here goes:
February 13 - Myrtle Beach Half Marathon - Myrtle Beach, SC
March 7 - Disney Princess Half Marathon - Orlando, FL
April 17 - Salt Lake City Half Marathon - Salt Lake City
May 15 - Ogden Half Marathon - Ogden, UT
June 12 - Teton Dam Marathon Relay - Rexburg, ID
July 17 - Bryce Canyon Half Marathon - Cannonville, UT
August 28 - Mesa Falls Half Marathon - Ashton, ID
September 5 - Disneyland Half Marathon - Anaheim, CA
October 23 - Prison Break Half Marathon - Boise, ID
November 25 - Turkey Trot 10K - Idaho Falls
December 5 - Las Vegas Rock and Roll Marathon - Las Vegas
Yes, you read that correctly, I'm going to do the full 26.2 in one year! There might be other races I do along the way, 5 & 10K mostly just to keep in shape & give me a chance to improve my times. But that's my year long plan. Anyway, I hope some of you can join me at least for a few of them. Most of these races have other distances, so if you don't feel up to running a full or half marathon, you could do a 5K or 10K instead.
And Skye, in 2011, I plan on coming to Hawaii in March for the Big Island Marathon or maybe the Maui half marathon. (I believe both of those are run in March.) So if you're not pregnant or something maybe you can run with me.
So those are my goals, and now that they're in writing it will be a lot harder to weasle out of them. Anyone else want to post their agenda?
