I will be running the Michelob Ultra Half Marathon in Queens this March. Unfortunately I didn't get into the NYC Half so I needed to find another race. I've got quite a bit of things coming up- a new move, a friends wedding, the Hampton's, etc- that spending money on a race entry + travel was a bit out of the question. I live in Queens and the entry was well under $100. And you get free beer. Need I say more?
My goal is to sub-2. It is possible? I think so, but you never know what race day might bring. Or what training obstacles may get in the way.
As usual, I plan on doing my long runs on the weekend. I've been trying out FitReserve (more on that next week!) and considering continuing throughout my training. If not, I'll do strength and yoga a few mornings and try to get a run or 2 in. Being it's dark out in the morning and evening, and I work long hours, I might have to rely on one-off classes and my own strength routines.
But I trained when I commuted for 4 hours a day and essentially did it all on a treadmill, sans run club days, so I think my goal is attainable as long as I don't give up.
Can't wait to share my training with you all!
