I can't believe Duke City is almost here. I can honestly say that my main goal is to be a Happy Finisher. The race will be a resounding success if I finish strong and uninjured at whatever ever time it take me to complete the course. And I think my training this time around has set me up for that. I've been feeling good after most of my recent runs. It's a completely different experience for me than same time last year.
Having said that, I do have a few additional time goals for the race so I’ve laid them out in tiered fashion:
* Primary Goal - Be a Happy Finisher and cross the finish line uninjured and feeling strong at the end at whatever time it takes me to complete the course.
* Icing on the Cake - Prove that Third Time’s a Charm and be a Happy Finisher with a time under 2:29:07 for a course PR
* Stretch Goal - Unleash my Inner Rabbit and be a Happy Finisher with anything under 2:21:36 for a half marathon distance PR.
Six days, one hour, and fifteen minutes to go. But who's counting?
