confidence !


marathons are as much mental as they are physical.

for me, it's so important to go into the race feeling good: trained, prepared, well rested, ready.

tonight's run was So Unbelievably Good.

I met up with my running group -- me + 2 guys. small group.

we started going a sub 8:00 pace... um, guys, we need to slow down a smidge.


and then -- I settled comfortably into an 8:10ish pace. unbelieveable.

5.10 miles in 41m 17s // 08m 05s/Mi

EIGHT. OH. FIVE.
splits:
mile 1: 8:17
mile 2: 8:05
mile 3: 8:16
mile 4: 8:04
mile 5: 7:54 (SEVEN. FIFTY. FOUR.)
