|Pre race at People's Forest|
I focused on staying under or at 10/mile. Mission accomplished because I stayed under 10 except for two individual miles. Bio breaks. Therefore this was even a better time considering the need to stop. The most satisfying part of the race was at mile 12. Something tol;d me to turn on the power which I did. I was in disbelief as I flew down the road. It soon became apparent I would have no problem staying at my pace goal. Fluids....drank a bunch the day before and 20+ ounces pre race. Did UCAN as well. I carb loaded yesterday and had breakfast 3 hours before the race. During the race I did a gel every 5 miles. Felt great the entire way.
I hope this can be repeated at upcoming half and full marathons. It was a "good one"today.
