Thanks and Happy New Year to you! First time I actually enjoyed seeing another year pass.

Nice start to the week...any goals for Boston?

From Robert on Tue, Jan 06, 2009 at 08:17:04

Yes, my goal is to follow you! Something below 3 hrs is my stretch goal. Below 3:07 is my main goal. You're shooting for sub 3, right?

From rockness18 on Tue, Jan 06, 2009 at 09:04:44

Yeah, I'm thinking sub-3, but I'll need to experience a little more improvement between now and then. I'll firm up my goal in March.

Hoepfully I will get to meet you guys in person in April in Boston. Should be a fun race. You guys have some great goals and should be able to reach them with some good training.
