Goals For The Galveston Half Marathon

This weekend I will be running in the Galveston Half Marathon race in Galveston, TX.  This is my first race since I ran the Houston Marathon.  I'm excited to head back to Galveston and run along the seawall!  Like usual, I have made a few goals for this race.


  1. Start out slow... run a reverse split race.

  2. Be confident, trust in training.

  3. Time goals ... sub 2:11.

  4. Stay hydrated and don't overheat.

  5. Have fun!

What types of goals do you set for a race?

I'm linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!

  2. Good Luck! I hope that you have a great race and I think your goals are totally manageable - its all about the experience and fun! :)

  3. Thanks! I took some pictures... but it was a foggy/cloudy day so they are kinda blah.

  4. Thanks! Yes... if it isn't fun, why do it :-)

  5. Your goals are obtainable - you'll do great I'm sure =)
