Goal for Marathon #3 - Tunnel Light Marathon

Goal for Tunnel Light Marathon 2018
Yep, I'm still here. I know I have been totally slacking from the blog but ever since our trip to Europe it kinda just fell to the wayside. I had some posts set up especially weekly wraps of my workouts but I just never ended up finishing them, thus no posts. Anyhow, here I am in Seattle at the airport waiting for my friend to arrive and about to partake in my 3rd marathon, The Tunnel Light Marathon (on Sunday), and I figure I should post my goals.

Training has gone fairly well. I had some days where I just couldn't hit the paces and days where I felt pretty darn awesome. The trip to Europe may have messed up training a bit but I still ran while over there and kept up my fitness. I pretty much followed my schedule from Coach Dawn to a T and did all the prescribed workouts, minus a couple of core workouts but let's hope that doesn't hurt me come Sunday. I got one 20 miler in and felt ok about it. For some reason, I don't feel quite ready for this one but maybe it's just my nerves.

My main goal for this marathon is to BQ and Coach Dawn has A, B, and C goals for me. For me to BQ in my age group, I need to get a time below 3:45.

Here are my goals:
A -3:41 (8:26)
B - 3:44 (8:32)
C - 3:49 (8:44) Not a BQ, but it still would be 7 min improvement, and me under the 3:50 mark.

I really hope I reach my A goal but if not, that's ok too. I know that I will be trying my best and will need to work really hard to get that A goal come Sunday. I'm really hoping it will be a good day for me. Good luck to everyone running a race this weekend!

Happy running!
