I am sure that many of us have our minds in Boston today. With so many bloggy friends running, it is hard to think of little else. Although my goals do not include a Boston marathon (I've quailified many times but just don't have the desire for the BIG marathon experince, yet!), I am filled with such excitement for those running. I can not imagne the experince a race at the level must hold.
Since everyone you toes that line today is a WINNER in my book,
little bug-man is decked out in medals for you all!
Today I am looking at a measly 10 - 13 miles today. But I will run them with as much heart as I can since I will be eager to get them done to read all the race reports!
This morning I only had time for my wake up run of 3.5 (27:00, yes flat!) I have a Relay for Life 5k this Saturday and I am going to say out loud that I want under 23:00 for my time. Is that possible with all the joggie stroller pushing I am doing? I know that I can finish in 23:30 that has been my time the last 2 5ks I have run but being a fan of tiered goals I will say:
My DREAM it goal: sub 23:00
My LOVE it goal: 23:??
My I CAN goal: 24:30
My I FINISHED goal: 25:00
Because I know on any given day things can go a hundred different ways, I will not be too disappointed if my race does not go the way I want. But I want something to shoot for if the body, the weather, the mind, the will of God is all working for me.
Congrats to all the Boston finishers!
