We crushed this goal already by running the Mustang 50th Half Marathon in Nevada and the Garmin Half Marathon in Kansas.
We'll also be able to cross California off the list for The Hubbo when we run the Half at the Ventura Marathon in September! If you want to join me or meet up at this race, you can use the discount code: BibChat10 to save $10 on your race registration! Let me know if you'll be there!
In 2013 we ended up with 9 medals total. So far in 2014 we've earned 7 medals and have several more races on the books!
If all goes according to plan, we'll pick up the following medals for the rest of 2014:
- Firecracker 5K
- Fleet Feet Quarter Marathon (Maybe)
- Tulsa Run 15K
- Ventura Half Marathon
- Jenks Half Marathon
- Route 66 5K
- Route 66 Full Marathon
This is the goal I am most worried about. I haven't ran a full marathon since March 2013. Also, I have never ran a marathon pain free. I'm interested to see if I can make it through this training session pain free and see how good/bad I'll do when I have a fair shot at a full marathon. My previous full marathon PR is 5:16. My plan is to run the full at Route 66 here in Tulsa in November. My realistic goal is 4:50-4:59. My ideal goal would be 4:45 - 4:50. We'll have to see how my body holds up. I've been doing things a lot differently this year which includes more cross training and trying to eat better.
Side Note - At the Route 66 Full, I'll also be doing the Center of The Universe Detour which adds .3 miles which makes it a 26.5 mile race!
This will be my second full marathon for 2014 but I'm not going into this one with any goals other than to have fun, enjoy the view, and cross the finish line. I'm not a hot weather runner and suspect this one will be hot and humid.
The Hubbo and I opted out of a summer vacation this year to run the Honolulu Marathon and turn it into a Winter Racecation.
Have you ever ran this marathon? Or traveled to Hawaii? Any advice for me?
