Lo and behold, a cold front pushed through midway through this week. Rumor has it, it was 47 degrees last night (=heaven). And Friday's forecast is mid- to low 60s. Insanely humid, and windy. But 60s! So I guess I'm racing.
Kyle is thrilled.
I solicited advice from running friends much of today to help me form my race goals and they are something as follows:
- PGSPR. Currently my PGSPR (Post-grad school PR) is 55:17.
- Course PR. I ran this race in 2011 (and crashed and burned). I ran a 54:14. I ran a 3 minute positive split, or something ridiculous like that. I just re-read my race report and laughed like a hyena. Enjoy that here.
- Sub 53. This is Kyle's prediction.
