Well, next Sunday is the big race in Chi-town. I’m not sure how I will do. I wanted to score a 3:10 or better. But I can already tell you that isn’t going to happen. As usual, I totally crapped out on my training, right when I was starting to really speed up. I ran a half marathon yesterday in Central Park. I was hoping for a 1:30 or better. I ended up with a 1:35. So, I would have to double those efforts to get my time in Chicago. Seems like a pretty long shot. Part of me is excited to get Chicago out of the way. I have put a lot of pressure on myself to get a good time. Once it is over, I can just kind of coast and relax until the New York Marathon, which I am running purely for the fun factor. Here are some of the stats from yesterday’s half-mara.
