WHERE ARE WE GOING?
Saturday, Mar. 16
Dash Down Greenville
NO REALLY, WHY?
This was my first race and is the one race I do every year. This will be my 6th in a row.
WHO ELSE IS GOING?
The registrant cap is 8,000, but a bunch of folks don't show up and a bunch of others don't wear the chip (but line up in front anyway). About 5,000 people will show up in the results.
WHAT'S THE FORECAST?
It'll be in the low 60s with a steady south wind of 10-15 mph -- pretty much exactly what it was last year.
HOW DO WE WIN?
Last year my A goal was to break 19:00 and my B goal was to beat my PR of 19:23, set in this race in 2011. I missed both, badly, finishing in 20:03 coming off an injury. I am returning from an injury this time, too, so I haven't done much fast running. I got through 2 miles in 12:19 last week, though, so I am going to set the same goals for myself this time -- but just to be sure, I'll add a C goal of beating last year's time. I feel pretty good about that.
