Yesterday I was prepping for the race and Linda's cousin Magda (Smurfette0725) (who is a 3 time marathoner, multiple half-marathoner, etc. and a huge inspiration to me!!!) told me that before a race she makes 3 goals/wishes. I will be happy if..., I will be psyched if...., and I will be SHOCKED if... So I came up with: I will be happy if i run the whole length of the race, I will be psyched if I beat my time of 33:45 and will be SHOCKED if i beat Derek (he was standing next to me when I made the wish). Well today I am psyched for beating my time by a whole minute and having my greatest friends there and the greatest supporter, my boyfriend!! Even though I was EXTREMELY jealous of him since he smashed his record by 90 seconds... I am still proud of myself for how far I have come.
So for my next race:
I will be happy if I come under 30 minutes.
I will be psyched if I am in the top 25% of my age group
I will be SHOCKED if I am in the top 25 of my age group
