Paper work and fees are now in; I received confirmation that I am set to line up and race the 3M half-marathon on January 29th. This race is a bit of a surprise to me seeing that I was not going to race again until the New Orleans’ half-marathon on March 4th. The January 3M race will allow me to be competitive while getting in a training tempo run. The New Orleans’ race will tell me more about my fitness and how I should assess my goals for April’s Boston marathon. Though I am not in what I would call race shape, I suspect that will change in the next six weeks.
