|Illinois Half-Marathon Course|
1:32:34 = New PR. 7:04 pace. Not going to happen.
1:33 = Dream goal. 7:06 pace.
1:34 = Maybe. If all goes perfectly. 7:10 pace.
1:35 = Realistic stretch goal. 7:15 pace.
1:36 = Fast, but feasible. 7:19 pace.
1:37 = Definitely doable. 7:24 pace.
1:38 = OK, but not happy. 7:29 pace.
1:39 or slower = Major disappointment. My running buddies Riddle and Rose could run this fast/slow. Unacceptable!
Weather forecast is for a low of 44F with a high of 52F. Very nice. With a chance of wind and rain. Not nice. If weather holds up (no rain and little wind), I believe I can run a 1:35 half-marathon this weekend. I'd be happy with that finish time.
Next year, 1:32:30! Did I just say "next year?"
