Boilermaker 15K plan.

Sunday is Boilermaker day! 

Last year was my first time running the race and I loved it. Positively. It helped that I was there with friends:

Elisa, Bridget, me before the race.

It also helped that the crowd rocked. It was just a fun, fun, fun race.

And it helped that I set a PR (1:13:59).

This year, I'd like to break that. My running has been going very well so I believe I am in a good position to set a new PR.

I mean, after all, last year I was still nursing my baby, still getting up with him at least once -- sometimes twice -- overnight. And yet, I ran a PR.

Last year, running strong near the end of the race.

So, here's what I hope to do on Sunday:

A Goal: break 1:13 (1:12:59 or better)
B Goal: 1:13:08 or better
C Goal: PR -- 1:13:58 or better

If it isn't too hot on race day, I believe I can at least reach my C goal -- I'm confident of that. We'll see what happens!

Are you racing this weekend? Have a big goal?


Have a great weekend, everyone!

I'm running the boilermaker too! It's our first time so we don't really have any expectations about the race apart from beer at the end :)
