Avenger’s Infinity Gauntler Challenge Race Goals

Are you getting a sense of de ja vu! Well no wonder, I just did this song and dance last week but for Wine and Dine!  Yeah I know I’m crazy for running back to back challenges and for the life of me I cant remember why I did it lol.  Oh well, race day is here and its time to put down some goals.

I’m writing this before Wine and Dine has been completed so my body may have different plans but for right now the goal is to treat the 10k like a race and the half like another training run.  Why race the 10k and not the half, well in all honesty I’m not ready to race another half.  I’m sure my legs are ready but my mind is not.  I’m still getting over the pretty horrible outcome of Disneyland Paris and I need more time to adjust my mental game.  Its getting better but I want to give myself more time and have my mind gear up for the full marathon.

You may recall I did this race last year (recap here) for the inaugural race challenge.  You could say I’m a sucker for an inaugural race…and you would be correct!  This year I signed up because its a great course, decent weather and smaller crowds than Walt Disney World.  Also because I really enjoyed it last year and had a great time.  I’m hoping that will be the case this year and really get me back in the “i love running” game.

These are my goals for the 10k

  • Finish under an hour
  • Don’t get injured
  • Have a good time
  • Finish under 1:05 if my body is just not having any of it

These are my goals for the half (pretty much the same as wine and dine):

  • Finish with a smile
  • Stop at whatever character stops I want to
  • Don’t get injured
  • Take the race at a training pace
  • Finish in 2:30:00 or less.

These two races I have two completely different approaches mainly because I have no intention of racing the half but the 10k I would love to break an hour finally.  The 10k and the half run pretty much the same course and if last year was any indication, will have the same character stops as well.  That means I don’t have to worry about missing a character in the 10k because ill see them and can stop for the half.  Priorities people, I have mine in order 🙂
