I have a few goals for the 2014 Houston Marathon, some of which are still being put together. The first was to actually be chosen in the lottery to run. That was accomplished with a little luck and prayer. Second, I wanted to make sure I was able to run at the front of the starting chute.
Thankfully I turned in a qualifying 10k time by the deadline and was notified yesterday that I will, in fact, be starting somewhere up in the front of the race.
The remaining goals include staying healthy through my 16 weeks of training and racing, as well as putting together a goal pace. I will determine that time somewhere in November as my training and pacing start to take pace. Good times!
