It feels good to be back in training mode. I just registered to run the Marine Corps Marathon 10K race on October 30, 2011. I have needed a new training challenge for a little while now. I took a pretty long break from training after last October’s Marine Corps Marathon. I still ran throughout the winter, but without much consistency. I bought a new bicycle this spring, so I cycled a lot more often than I ran throughout the spring and summer.
I ran the MCM 10K in 2009, so my goal for this race is to beat my 2009 time of 57:45 (~9:19 min/mi). I will probably set a more specific time goal a little closer to the race.
