It's race day, you're excited and rightly so. You've trained hard, got up early and you're on time. Today is the day for a personal best. You feel it in your bones. As you approach the staging area, you get a novel idea. "Why don't I line up at the 6 min per mile marker. I'm bound to run faster. I'll just stay with the group". It's easy to get carried away when you're overly excited. That's understandable. However, if you are an 8 min per mile runner, line up at that marker. Faster runners have a hard time passing you on narrow streets and lose valuable time. Remember, they are shooting for their best run too.
Train hard and get to that marker! Until next time Keep It Moving.
