As most of you know, I'm running the Surf City Half Marathon this weekend. I ran this race last year (my first big race) and I finished in 2:04.
Now, I know there is no way in heck-a-roo that I will beat that time for a few reasons:
1. I'm not as fit as I was last year.
2. I am running alone (my girlfriend last year really pushed me to pick up my pace).
3. I am slightly to moderately UNDERTRAINED.
So taking these lame excuses into play, here are my race goals:
1. Have fun
2. Finish Strong - at least at 2:10
3. Make the Captain proud
4. Eat a crapload of food afterwards
Good luck to everyone else running this weekend.

You're not undertrained, you're just well rested!
Woo hoo! I am excited for you!! Can't wait to see how it goes. Perhaps next year I could give it a try. Hmm.
Hey now! Being under trained is waaayyy better than being over trained ;-)
Yay!!! Good luck! You'll do great -- the adrenaline will kick in!
Good luck, you will do great!!
Best of luck this weekend! I think that having fun is a great #1 goal, along with the eating a crapload of food afterwards too of course!
Have a great race!
Good luck! Kick some half marathon ass and give us a race report.
Ohhh you'll be just fine at this race! Have a great run!
Good luck and happy racing :-)!
Good luck Jess! I am sure you will do great. :)
Have a ton of fun! Good luck :-)
Good luck and have fun this weekend! You'll definitely meet your goals. :)
Sounds like a blast. Have a great time. 2:04 is pretty fast. Damn.
Ooh, cute t-shirt. Have lots of fun!
Have fun - and have fun!!
You'll do great - good luck!
Good luck & have fun!
they always say its better to be undertrained than overtrained. i don't know who 'they' are ... but they always say that. i'd go with it & not worry - you'll be great!
Good Luck with your race! It is often difficult to compare year to year races against each other. The course may change, the weather different etc... Have a great time and ejoy yourself after. Eat Lots! You will have earned it!
Have fun and have a cold one when you are done!
Good luck, you will do great!
You'll have a blast! Good luck and have a great race!
EEEEEEK!!! Good luck girly!! You will do awesome!
Having fun should always be the #1 goal. Enjoy it from the starting line to the finish line.
Can't wait for the race report.
Looking forward to hearing how you did! Good luck and have a good time!
Good luck with your race, I'm sure you will kick arrss - love your goals.
PS - I noticed the same thing about the movies, I was thinking of checking some of the ones you have listed that I haven't seen. I have about 50 movies I want to see right now, but haven't had time to lately....but I do have time to read countless blogs.
Good luck! Can't wait to read the race report.
Good luck, I am sure you will do awesome!
If you can do 2:10 when you're undertrained, you're a rockstar, no matter what!
Best of luck!
I like the shirt design -- very surf-y.
GOOD LUCK! Have a fantastic post race celebration!
Good luck tomorrow on your race.
Good Luck tomorrow.
Wish I could be there with you! Have a great time and can't wait to hear your report :)
Good luck and hope you enjoyed yourself - can't wait to read the report!
Hope it went well... I'm relaxing now after my half and it wasn't half bad (grin)
Sounds like you had some great goals! Hope it went awesome!!
Sorry I couldn't post Friday (was on my way to Texas). A little late, but, since you haven't posted your result yet - good luck.
Ok, now, how'd you do ? :)
I bet you kicked ass in the race!
Hope you're at home recovering and gearing up for Hawaii!
I'm sure your legs remember what to do!! Hope you met your goals - especially #4! =) I love post-race food! ;)
