I have no intention of running the marathon at that pace. I wouldn’t make it past the halfway point.
Other than the pace, today was practice for the full marathon. I ate like I would before the big race. I perhaps hydrated a bit too much (thus the stop during the run). And I tried carrying my Gu and gear in my new skirt from RaceReady. (The skirt is great! Thanks for recommending RaceReady!)
I'm gearing up for an 18-mile run next week!
