I used to be a cyclist until I got to Atlanta. I am now back to being a runner. Last year I finished a half-marathon in 1:32:45 at a 7:04 pace. I took 61st out of 2,800+.
This year I’ve started training much, much earlier with the goal of making this my first full, competitive running season since high school. I’m already on my second week of 35+ miles. I fully intend on dropping at least 4 minutes from my half-marathon time and finishing in the top 40 in this year’s race.
I had to write this down because I feel really good right now and very excited about what I think I am capable of doing. I also hope by making my goal public that the odds of me following through will increase.
