Goals For The Galveston Half Marathon

This weekend I will be running in the Galveston Half Marathon race in Galveston, TX.  This is my first race since I ran the Houston Marathon.  I’m excited to head back to Galveston and run along the seawall!  Like usual, I have made a few goals for this race.


  1. Start out slow… run a reverse split race.
  2. Be confident, trust in training.
  3. Time goals … sub 2:11.
  4. Stay hydrated and don’t overheat.
  5. Have fun!

What types of goals do you set for a race?

I’m linking up with Running on Happy & Fairytales and Fitness for the Friday Five 2.0 linkup!

    Good luck! Please take pictures, I’d love to see what this race is all about. I use to live in Texas. It never been to Galveston!

      Thanks! I took some pictures… but it was a foggy/cloudy day so they are kinda blah.

    Good Luck! I hope that you have a great race and I think your goals are totally manageable – its all about the experience and fun! 🙂
