Aim High, All or Nothing...The Death March

Well, there it was...staring me in the face as I looked at my bib last night.

I had to put down a goal time. Hmmm...I thought about it for about 2 min then I went ahead and put my goal time of 1:59.59. After all that IS my goal. I am nervous about putting that out there because I have doubts that it will happen. It hasn't happened yet, not on flat courses and not on a little bit hilly courses, and certainly NOT on the Seattle course. I am not giving up on that goal but I am prepared to not accomplish it. Is that strange? Should I be willing to go out there this morning is completely kill myself? Should I be of the mindset that if I don't get this sub 2 time and I CAN walk to the car I did not give it my best? Is it the guts to give it my all that separates the men from the boys? Have I given my all in a half yet? We will see what this race holds....

Plan A: 1:59.59
Plan B: 2:05.59
Plan C: Finish sub 2:23.12
Plan D: Finish.

I think I can accomplish at least one of these goals!

Here's to a good running day!

I'll be back for a full race report later!

And don't forget about my giveaway (HERE)!
