2010 Running Plans

Been wavering over this decision for the past couple of months, and I'm happy to finally have made a decision - no NYC Marathon. I have a bunch of colleagues and friends, many first time marathoners, running the race and I want to root for them on the course. It will be my first as a spectator. Went through the motions of training and running the 2009 NYC marathon and I don't want to do that again. Discovered after doing the NJ and NYC marathons last year that I have the capacity to seriously train for one marathon per year. This year, it's the Boston Marathon. Goal time is 3:10.

I've also decided on a secondary goal - a sub 1:30 half marathon. With minimal running, I was encouraged by the 1:31:46 finish at the Manhattan half. Not sure which race yet, but I'm leaning towards the Philly half. I'll also be running, or perhaps racing some of the other NYRR half marathons this year.

Until then, I'm in the middle of a recovery week preparing for some heavy March training. Really looking forward to it too.

Philly Half is a fun race - I did it in '08. Of the NYRR Halfs, I really enjoyed Staten Island. Haven't done Brooklyn yet, but heard that's a great one too.

Good luck at Boston and snagging that 1:30 half!
