Welcome 2010!

I ended 2009 by running in the Jingle Bell run 5K. With most of the streets the race was held on snow covered I ended just slightly behind where I thought I would. In truth it was about has good has I had thought I could run in especially in the conditions.

So that means I ended 2009 with 20 races. Which consisted of:
  • 7 - 5K's
  • 1 - 4 miler
  • 1 - 5 miler
  • 2 - 10K's
  • 1 - 8 Miler
  • 2 - 15K's
  • 1 - 10 miler
  • 3 - Half marathons
  • 1 - 25K
  • 1 - Marathon

Of them I had no real PR's. I feel I've slowed down. Last couple of months I have noticed it more. But its a new year. I had some real fun races last year and hope for more of the same this year. So looking forward in a year I enter a new age group, but till August what are the goals. I gave it some thought and didn't come up with much, so I thought some. So here's what im willing to put down to blog.

  1. Finish Cleveland Marathon. Preferably under 4:30. Ultimately in 4:15.
  2. Run 1800 miles.
  3. Have more fun running or at least has much has last year.
  4. Get 2 PR's.

I will try to get some more goals. Am considering a second marathon next year but very non commital about it.
