A) Break 3:10. It would be cool to be a 3:0X:XX marathon runner. Not as cool as a sub-three hour marathoner, but first things first.
B) PR. My best time is 3:12:41 set at Boston last year.
C) Break last year's MDI Marathon time of 3:14:33.
D) I'm already in the 2012 Boston Marathon, but if I break 3:15:00, I would qualify for the 2013 Boston Marathon under the new standards (I'll be 40 then). However, I'll have another chance to qualify at Boston this April if it doesn't work out.
There ya have it. I also ran today. Just a little over three miles in the mist. Rather pleasant running conditions and it was quite enjoyable. Taking a rest day tomorrow. Short run on Saturday and then it's race time!!!
Ran 3.4 miles @ 7:40/mile pace.
Upper 50s, overcast, misting.
Brooks Mach 13, shorts, long sleeved shirt, cap.
