Well this Saturday is the 2010 Famous Idaho Potato Marathon. I’m going to be running the half marathon again this year. Maybe next year I’ll be up to the challenge of the whole 26.2 miles. But hey 13.1 miles is nothing to sneeze at. My goals are to #1 finish the race. #2 Finish faster than last year.
Last year I finished somewhere around 2 hours 15 minutes give or take some change. I also didn’t walk more than ten steps or so. I hope to do the same this time. I’m going to have a different strategy this year. I’m going to start at the back of the pack and hang out there for a while. Last year I started near the front with the spandex wearing crazy elite people. I ended up trying to keep up with them. I really don’t need to tell you how big a mistake that was. I was tired by about mile 5 or 6. This time I’m going to let all those crazies go and I’m going to run my own race 100%. I’m not going to chase anyone.
Wish me luck. Hmm… maybe I’ll imagine zombies are chasing me! That will improve my time. 😉
