I'm going to try to improve on my 4:58 in the Marathon, and Chris is going to take on the Dolphin Challenge -- an 8K on Saturday followed by the Half Marathon on Sunday.
As I said at the time, everything about this event was great except for my own performance. If I can stay healthy I think I can do better.
I've got a whole marathon between now and Shamrock, so I don't want to get too far ahead of myself. However, while I plan to use Hal Higdon's Novice II training for Philly, I think I'll go with one of the Intermediate plans for Shamrock, since training in the winter gives me more opportunities for running within my temperature comfort zone. In the summer, I'm pretty much "first thing in the morning or not at all", while in winter I can more easily get myself out for a run in at lunch or at night (if it's dry -- black ice is scary).
I'm looking forward to making the trip to Virginia Beach again, this time with more endurance and smarter pacing.
