Hamptons Half-Marathon Expectations

Hamptons Marathon and Half-Marathon

This will be a real quick post, I promise.  Tomorrow is the Hamptons Marathon and Half-Marathon and I just wanted to share my goals for tomorrow’s race.  It makes me accountable.

As I am currently training for the 2010 New York City Marathon, I have to admit… I am looking forward to running a nice short 13.1 mile race.  I just hope this horrible rain we have been having in NY is over and we get some nice cool running weather.  ;-)

So here are the main goals for tomorrow:

  1. Have fun!
  2. Treat this as a hard “training run” for NYC
  3. Go out slow (8:30 first mile)
  4. Maintain an average pace below 8:00 per mile (1 hour 45 minutes)
  5. Cheer on all the “first timers” at the finish line

Based on my last few pace runs (9 Miler at 7:53 Pace and 12 Miler at 8:09 Pace), I am feeling pretty confident about these goals!

I will be sure to report back my results!  ;-)
