Last 3 Miles and Goals

After months of training diligently (most of the time), I'm down to the last 3 miles. I ran 6x400 Monday night, 6 miles Tuesday night, and tonight I'll get in the last three at marathon pace. Tomorrow morning, we will be off to Green Bay.

I'm really excited for this marathon. Besides being a "reward" for months of hard training, I'll have my whole support crew there cheering me on. My husband and Sophie, my mom, and my in-laws are all coming. Hopefully knowing they will be there will give me an extra kick of motivation.

I have several tiers of goals:
1) Finish.
2) Sub-5:00. I need to beat the suck-fest that was Grandma's 2008.
3) Sub-4:55. I would love to get a PR.
4) Sub-4:30. I think I can do this. If everything goes well. And I don't wimp out.

I'll be back on Sunday night. In the meantime, hope you all have a great weekend!

You will do wonderfully well. You've been such a good girl at training, I feel you will not only meet, but exceed your goals. Yay for a great cheering squad. Have a blast and come back with lots of stories. I need a nice meaty race report!

Best of luck at Green Bay. It's a good race. A few small inclines, but nothing major.

FYI - Family and friends can get into Lambeau field and watch you run around (and take pictures).

You get a nice respite along the river in the second half - it's a really nice part of the run.
