This has been the goal race for the year and I am ready to rock it. Right now it looks like it will be 50s and sunny which is perfect running weather. I have packed my throwaway clothes and I'm ready for this!!
So here are my goals:
A: sub-5 hour
I have been chasing this for awhile. In the 90 degree heat, I ran a 5:18 so I know that sub-5 is in there. I will be doing everything in my power to get there
B: sub 5:15
Who knows what will happen and how I react to the course.
C: sub 5:18:53
A new PR at a world major would make me so happy!
D: finish with a smile
Things could get crazy or I could hit a wall. I want to finish and finish happy.
Honestly I am expecting great things from this race. I am going for a PR but also need to keep in mind that I have a lot of races coming up in November (wine and dine 5k and half, avengers 10k and avengers half, black light run 5k and turkey trot 5k and 10k and then my goal 10k on 12/5). I am hoping that by being active after the marathon, it will keep my legs loose. I am hoping the cool weather will help me towards that goal.
What are your goals for your next race? Any tips for running NYCM?
