Upcoming races and Goals

Has of right now my plan is to not run a fall marathon. Please try and hide your disappointment. But in case you had any doubts about it i will be filling the summer and fall with plenty of races from 5K to Half marathon. I made a list races I can make it to and not interfere with my current work schedule. (see below) For most part there is nothing definite.

But I did set some goals for a couple races. I want to break 2 hours in the half. I only did once so I want to get a new PR, preferably at Presque Isle in July. I plan to run at least 2 more halfs this year.

My other goal is to get a PR in the 10K. I will probably run 2 to 4 of them. I ideally I hope to break 50 minutes, did 51:00 at the Peace Race last year.

Now this week coming up im just running what I feel like running, then hoping to get serious again, that gives me 7 weeks till the Presque Isle half in July. I know I have the endurance for a half just need to do more speed work. Same old story there.

Had to drop by your blog because the title caught my eye. I, too, am a race addict!

Looks like you have a decent plan!

I was unable to run a spring marathon this year due to a (non-running) injury, but really enjoyed training for the shorter distances and came out of it with some nice PR's.

Good luck!
