You speed work is looking strong! I’m excited for your opportunities to rip one next weekend!

Thanks! I was definitely feeling strong last night. I’m really hoping that I feel as strong on race day. I just have to remember to not go out too fast and ease my way into the speed.

Make sure you keep that pace under control at the start of the marathon.

I definitely plan on keeping my speed in check at the start of the race. I learned my lesson at the San Diego Rock 'n’ Roll last year. The plan is to take the race in quarters starting at about a 7min/mi pace for the first quarter and increasing the speed each 6-7 miles. The course definitely lends itself to my plan with a gradual incline for almost the first half of the race and a decline on the second half. It should help with picking up speed on those later miles.
