Gate River Run 15k National Championship
I'm excited about the race tomorrow. I am about pasta dinner'ed out, eating pasta every night for the last 3 days.
The goal is to run the first mile in 7:30 and then turn the screws. Last year I had the same plan and ran the first mile in 7:30, and then subsequent miles right around 7 minute pace until 8 and 9. Those were 7:25 and 7:48. I ended up finishing in 1:08:22, which I wouldn't mind doing tomorrow. I would like to crack 1:08. Although not a PR, with the sporadic nature of my speed training lately, it would be an accomplishment.
This race is huge for Jacksonville, and has been a part of my life for a long time.
Good luck to everyone running tomorrow!
