Next big goal race

After thinking a bit and feeling a bit weird for not having any strict training program to follow. I have signed up for my next big goal race, the half marathon race at the Viborg City Marathon on September the 13th.

I originally did not want to do the race as it's 5 hours away from me, but after going over the website again, I changed my mind. It looks extremely well arranged and will have runners in costumes, lots of bands along the route for entertainment. Check out the pictures from last year and more here. Besides Copenhagen Marathon, I think this is as close as we get to a big city like race in Denmark.

On the shorter distance front, I raced a local 5K, "Taastrup løbet" the same one where I ran my very first race, it's a monthly race and on a quite fast route. I ended up with a time of 21:09, way better than my optimistic goal of sub 22:00. Besides the half marathon in Viborg, my second goal for the rest of 2009 is running a sub 20:00 5K. Optimistic, but I don't think it's impossible.

  1. Good for you for having more goals! You are crazy fast - I am so jealous of your 5K times!
