Race day conditions: 45 degrees and overcast.

 

Miles 1-4: 6:42, 6:42, 6:52, 6:54  I was feeling pretty good.  I just wanted to stay with Joe Bell as long as I could I wanted to BQ today.  My training mileage came up a little short of what I wanted to put in, so I knew the end would be tough.  Joe and I had a very relaxed start, just chatting along the way.  It felt really comfortable.

 

Miles 5-8:  7:00, 6:46, 6:42,6:38  Still feeling relaxed.  There was another runner that joined Joe and I.  He was a little youger.  This was his first run longer than a 10k.  We started through Heritage Park, which was on paved trails.

 

Miles 9-12:  6:41, 6:47, 7:00, 7:07  Going into mile 10, I feel like the pace is starting to tax me a little.  about half way through 11, I break away from the group and let of the gas just a little.  I still feel good, I just know that this is not a pace that I'm going to be able to maintain.  These miles are also up hill gaining about 100 feet in elevation.

 

Miles 13-16:  7:33, 7:46, 7:22, 7:03  Mile 13 and part of 14 is up hill (about 50 more feet).  1:30:06 for the half way mark (PR for any half that I've ran).  I go from feeling good to ok.  I remember the thought going through my head, "just keep the pace under 8 minutes"  A few more paved trail runs which were nice and wooded blocking the wind, but the turn were very tight.

Miles 17-20:  7:45, 7:38, 7:51, 7:59  I see my mom, dad, my brother Aaron, Heidi, and the kids between 16 and 17.  I was not expecting to see my parents or my brother.  This was a definite lift at the right spot too.  I have gone from ok to not quite ok.  My legs are feeling it now.  2:22:42 for 20.  I missed my mark by 2 minutes 42 seconds.  Still thinking, no 8's and I'll be ok.

 

Miles 21-24:  8:09, 8:00, 8:09, 8:29  The 3:05 pace group passes me in mile 21,  I try to hang with them for a while.  Now my thought shifts from no 8's to don't let this pace group out of site.  There are about a dozen or so in the group.  Staying with them only last for maybe a half mile.  I can't will my legs to go any faster.  However, I still know that I have a chance, the 3:10 group is still behind me.  The 3:10 'group' which consists of the pacer and a Marathon Maniac and thats it, passes me in mile 23 coming out of Central Park.  The pacer tells me he is about 45 seconds fast.  I think the 3:05 group was a little behind also.  Reguardless, I can't keep pace.

 

Miles 25, 26, 0.2:  9:46, 9:25, 1:45(8:30pace)  I think at this point I was mentally drained and just wanted to see the finish line.  Aaron runs the last 2 tenths with me. I PR by 8 minutes!  Boston will have to wait until another day.

Over all, I feel good about the race.  It is my PR.  Joe Bell sets a PR and BQ-8.  We go out for a nice celebratory meal.  The family wants to get inside to warm up.
