Dreaming Big Or Just Dreaming?

I thought this was awesome & sums up exactly how I feel
about running – check it out at caitchris@blogspot.com

I have BIG dreams. Visions of winning US Championships and making Olympic teams are always in my thoughts. Flashbacks of putting on the USA jersey and running my guts out to score a point for my country are common occurrences.  I have an odd desire to run as much mileage as physically possible.  I want to set an American record. Some people think I’m totally out of my mind & I’m completely fine with that.

Goals:
5K – sub 15:35
10K – sub 32:45
1/2 Marathon – sub 1:12:30
Qualify for the Olympic Trials
Win

This year I’ve decided to run more road races to (hopefully) make some money so I can continue this gig for a little while longer. Sounds like a pretty logical thought, huh? Well, apparently it seems cray-zay to race directors because only a quarter of my e-mails to elite athlete coordinators were responded. My coach suggested I look into getting an agent. To be honest, I’m not really sure how I’m supposed to afford to pay an agent 20% of my winnings when I’m probably living only slightly above the poverty line.

Not to worry though friends, I’m relentless. I’ll get my gluten free cake & eat it too 😉
