Ran with a group today for the first part of my long run with Trent from RunningAhead and a co-worker. Co-worker has a natural 3:30 marathon pace, with a BQ under his belt. Trent led the way, and we managed to keep exactly on my "target" LR/ER pace of 9'18".
Total Time (h:m:s) 1:33:05 (9:18 pace)
Distance (mi ) 10.01
Elevation Gain (ft) +489 / -505
Then we proceeded to stand around for 18 minutes of blabbing/recovery... then I finished my "18 miler" by getting lost on the way back from downtown:
Total Time (h:m:s) 1:29:33 (9:48 pace)
Distance (mi ) 9.12
Elevation Gain (ft) +402 / -399
I'm running a 9.2 mile leg of a relay race between our office buildings today.
I am one of 24 runners and 6 walkers participating in a relay between two of our office buildings (9.2 miles) today to raise money for World Hunger. This relay takes us:
- South on Poplar Level Rd
- Crossing at Jefferson Ave
- Crossing Fern Valley Rd
- Crossing Outer Loop
- Down Preston Hwy
- Across the Gene Snyder interchange and down the I-265 Northbound exit ramp area to South Preston Hwy.
I've run some crazy routes in my marathon training, but the shoulder between the exit ramp and Preston Hwy is pretty dicey. Help me make this risk worthwhile.
We won our relay (4 x 9.2 miles) by two minutes.
