Am I Crazy?

I am still sore from running my first half marathon two days ago and I went ahead a signed up for the A1A 2016 Half Marathon.

Slide1Oh, and where they asked for anticipated time… I put 1:45. I guess I have a lot of speed work to do. 🙂

  1. Putting an estimated finish time is such an interesting feeling! It’s a mixture of “let’s DO THIS, gauntlet THROWN!” and “holy crap, what am I getting myself into?” When I signed up for half marathon #2, it was 6 months before I even ran half marathon #1. I think I put something super conservative like 2:20. I had no idea how fast I could run 13.1 at that point!

    That’s awesome that you’re signed up again for next year! If you keep training and working hard, I think shaving 10 mins off your time in one year is very doable!


    1. Yeah. Right now, 1:45 sounds impossible. The main reason I put that though was because the pace group below the one I ran with this year is 1:45. I figured that since I enjoyed being with the 2:00 pace group so much that I might be able to handle being with the 1:45. I think I would have trouble pacing myself to that time. However, a lot can happen in a year.

      I think I put 2:15 for my anticipated time for this race. haha. Apparently I was playing it conservative too.
