“Shake Out” Run – Ready For Broad Street


So today I got up early for an easy 4 miles to just shake out the legs. The run was nice and easy and it was a gorgeous morning for a run.  Watched the sun come up over the water in Tyler.  The legs felt good and I feel ready.    I am taking Broad Street more seriously than I have for a race in quite sometime.

I am staying downtown tonight with Joe Warwick and a few others who are racing tomorrow.  This should make getting to the race a bit easier.    I have been thinking about how I am going to race this.  My two teammates want to run about the same time I am which is somewhere in the 57+ min range.  Joe will likely take it out a bit harder as Bill likes to settle in more.  I will likely go with Joe and as this is a course that, I believe, should be raced aggressively.  The key is to remain focused until City Hall which is about 1/2 mile past half way.  Once past City hall the race seems to pick up.  Need to hit halfway in 28+ and be in position to bring it home.

Saturday is a busy day, kids soccer, birthday party, watch my nephew at a track meet, piano lessons …  Typical Saturday.  As hard as it is, I am trying to stay off my feet as much as possible and tonight will hit the hay early.  Tomorrow is a big one.  Time to race well….
