Tomorrow I’ll be running the Zooma Half, so I thought here would be a good place to lay out my goals.
C: Just PR my 1:50:20 from D.C.
LOL. Or not.
This is tomorrow’s forecast. Yikes.
A: Do not die.
B. Do not end up in medic tent.
C: Do not die.
I’ll start training for Wineglass in the next week or so, so this was never intended to be a goal race. I’m running the race as one of their Ambassadors, which means I got a free entry in exchange for blogging about it.
Zooma is a women’s-only race series, with races around the country. Yes, that is a ton of estrogen in one place, but I love how races like these encourage women to live active, healthy lives, and I also love Annapolis. My freshman year roommate was dating a guy at the Naval Academy, so we went up there to see him and his friends a lot that year. After that, I kept going back with friends, because it is on the Chesapeake Bay, which is the closest you’re getting to the ocean from D.C. Also, I love crabcakes and football, and that’s what Maryland does.
Also…apparently this will be my first two-marathon year. I put my name in the NYCM lottery on a total whim, and was accepted. It’s my friend Emily’s‘s first, so I’ll be running it with her!
Are you running NYCM? Do you abandon/adjust time goals for hot races?
