Crystal Lake Half Marathon Goals

And bam, time for another half. I kind of like back to back weekends of races mostly because I feel I can run less because I am 'resting' during the week which equals more sleeping in which is nice. Sunday is the Crystal Lake Half in the Crystal Lake Park district apparently the course goes through town and around some lakes on a mostly paved course. From the description it would seem that there are hills. Well tickle me pink. And I assumed the Midwest was flat. Apparently I was wrong.

Goals:
A Goal: Beat last weekends time of 2:16
B Goal: Around 2:16
C Goal: Finish I guess
My goals are a little uninspired this week. There is a Clydesdale division at this race as well so maybe place in that again would be a good goal. The only thing I am not loving about this race is their disclaimer that you might not get your t-shirt size if you don't come early to packet pick-up. Um why? I have to choose it when I register so why can't I get it when I pick up my packet on race day. This is not the first time I have seen this disclaimer and I always wonder why t-shirt sizing is such a problem. Not that I really need another race shirt, I am just curious as to why this happens.

In other news I am feeling very pleased with myself as I have figured out how to take the metra to work.



The station is a five minute walk from my house, 12 minute train ride, 7 minute walk to my office building. Brilliant.
