Quite simply, I want to run a personal record (PR) in every distance in 2011. I'm not looking to run a PR in every race- I simply want to finish 2011 with better times in every distance than I have in 2010. What really made me want to accomplish this goal is my time in the half-marathon. When I ran my first half, I wasn't sure I would ever want to run another. But within a week, I knew that I didn't want that time to stand as the best I could do in a half-marathon.
Here are my current PR times for the distances I have run-
5K (3.1 miles) - 29:40. Set in April 2010.
8K (5 miles)- 49:50. Set in November 2009.
10 miles- 1:48:49. Set in May 2010 (only 1 race at this distance)
1/2 marathon (13.1 miles)- 2:56:04 (only 1 race at this distance)
So- there you go- by the end of 2011, I want each of these times to be lower than what they are now. I am really going to dedicate myself to my running in 2011, and hope that I am able to meet my goals.
