A new year is a time for renewal, resolutions, health, and happiness! I love the turning of the year because it provides the opportunity to make lists of things I want to accomplish (and I don’t feel silly doing it since everyone else is too).
As for the running side of me, I’d like to set a PR for a half marathon. My best time is 1:59:30 which was my halfway point time at the 2010 Marine Corps Marathon. However, you see my goal goes a little further than this, because ultimately I would love to one day qualify for the Boston Marathon (I need a time of 3:40, fast right!?). To help me get there I am setting a goal to run a 1:40-1:50 race in the National Half Marathon this March. It will take some speed work and discipline in getting there but I have high hopes that this will serve as my springboard to Boston.
