I am running this with my buddy Steve, and we have discussed two possibilities since deciding to run this race back in the spring. Either try to run a very evenly paced 4:10, to further his goal of being an official pacer at that pace for another race later on, or to shoot to break 4:00. We've both broken 4:00 multiple times in the past, so it is not a killer goal (though I've tried to do it and failed quite a few times too!).

We decided a few weeks ago that our goal would become a race-morning decision. So, we won't know until we are in the chute!

I know that your training has you in good shape to go sub 4 if you so choose, but how has his training gone?

His training was good, too. Only glitch with his was that he was on vacation during the second week of a three week taper, and did no running at all. Frankly, I don't think that is going to hurt him. He's run 15 or more marathons, and has broken 4:00 more frequently than me. Given his training, I think he could do get it done.

I have a feeling we will be going for 3:59:59, but we'll see.

First run today since the marathon. Headed out to see if I felt like 6 or more, maybe up to 12.
Perfect day. Upper 40s. Felt great. I mean really good. Took it easy the first mile, then a little less easy, then just started running. Felt good the whole way. Ended up doing 12 miles and averaging 8:36 per mile. Nice!
I signed up for Philly as a backup plan to MCM about a month or more ago. In case it was pouring rain, or 85 degrees or something. Now I'm thinking I might just run it. Somewhat like I did Hartford last year. We'll see. Gotta keep my eye on how I feel, whether I want to take the time, whether I want to pay for a night in the hotel, the train ride or the drive, or...., well, you get the idea.
Of course, it's crazy. But I like crazy sometimes.
