16 weeks of training: 4 months of training...and it all comes down to 1 DAY...
I have been asked several times if I have a Goal for Boston.
I am a big goal setter.
The problem with Goals is that if you verbalize them and do not achieve them you feel like a Royal Loser!
But if you do not set a Goal then you are willy nilly about the event or whatever your circumstance is your wanting to plan out.
So do I set an Easy Goal? One that is achievable but not raising the bar...
Or do I set a Goal that I could work hard at and possibly achieve?
Do I run Boston with smiles, having fun and living the moment?
Or Do I Run this Hard and try to PR? Where the smiles come in the end if you attain your desired race results.
I know what I have trained to run. I know what I am capable of..But am I willing to put in one more day of pain...heartache, sweat and tears?
Here are my Marathon Results:
Chicago Marathon 2010: 3:40:02
Boston Marathon 2011: 3:39:44
Bayshore Marathon 2012: 3:30:52
Detroit Marathon 2012: 3:37:51

This was my Verse I clung to while training for Chicago to qualify for Boston. I have since adopted this verse as my life verse.
I Believe ALL things Are Possible with HIM.
I think I should set a GOAL...
