Pace Yourself Before You ...

  • Oct 14, 2013 · 7:00 PM
  • Memorial Park Stretch Deck

... I'm not sure ... Race Yourself? Disgrace? Misplace? Transform*?

Whichever. In cooler months, Monday is for focusing on running a specific pace, usually somewhere between mildly ambitious and heroic. It's not a competition ... we're there to help push each other to get where we want to be.

Distances will be more like 4 to 6 miles, but no worries if you aren't there yet. Run what you can. And if your ambitious pace is Just Finishing, then that's a fine pace.

We'll have designated pacers for these runs, going a specified time and distance. If none are a perfect match, try running part of the distance with them, and dropping off when you have to. You'll be amazed what you can do, when you're paced by someone faster than you thought you were!

Starts and ends at the stretch deck. See you there!

      I'm sorry we missed you. I hope you can make it out for the Wednesday night run. We typically huddle on the far side of the stretch deck, close to the tennis court entrance.

      Hi Tracey,

      I hear you. Not running during the summer is very understandable. It's hot out there! If you ever decide to give it a try, I think you'll find you acclimate somewhat, but to be honest I still struggle with it myself.

      In the meantime, with the better weather, we'd all love to see you!
