that&#39;s a new PR!</p> <p>My goal was just to beat last year (36:00), pipe dream goal was to beat my big peach sizzler time (35:44).</p> <p>I workout on this course all the time so I had a really good sense of how to pace myself, which I think really helped. Especially because it seemed like many of the mile markers were either wrong or missing.</p> <p>I took the lead about 400meters into the race and thought that I had the race locked up. I hit the bridge over Ralph Mcgill which is just shy of&nbsp;the mile in 5:14. However in the second mile I slowed down a little as I ran about 6:06 from Ralph Mcgill to the north end of the beltline (about 5:3x&nbsp;pace). That allowed Kennesaw State runner Matt Auers to catch up to me. I&#39;ve beaten Matt a few times this year but he&#39;s still a sub 16 guy so I was a little nervous.</p> <p>I hit the official 2 mile mark in 11:16 which didn&#39;t seem correct (probably more like 11:00). Matt still stayed right on me as we cross Monroe and hit the trail. I was already hurting but I wasn&#39;t just going to slow down and let him pass. I&nbsp;hit the 3rd mile in 16:22 (5:06) and that didn&#39;t seem right either. Based on the beeping of Matt Auers watch, I think it was probably more like 16:45 at 3 miles.</p> <p>The 3 mile mark is just about the low point of the course. As soon as we hit a small climb, I put a little gap on Matt, but I wasn&#39;t sure how far back he was. Mile 4 was 5:41 (22:04) and I decided that maybe I was just running fast. I knew the course was accurate overall, and that a PR was likely.</p> <p>The last two miles are all uphill and I just tried to keep it together. I could still hear some latent cheering for Matt, but the latency got longer and longer. I ran 13:09 for the last 2.1 miles (maybe), which is about 6 flat pace. That matched up with the paces from the quarter mile marks on the trail. Somehow ended up winning by a minute.</p> Sat, 02 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Fri, Dec 01, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-12-01-2017.html Fri, 01 Dec 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 30, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-30-2017.html Thu, 30 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Wed, Nov 29, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-29-2017.html Wed, 29 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Tue, Nov 28, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-28-2017.html Tue, 28 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Mon, Nov 27, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-27-2017.html Mon, 27 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sun, Nov 26, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-26-2017.html Sun, 26 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Sat, Nov 25, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-25-2017.html Sat, 25 Nov 2017 07:00:00 Thu, Nov 23, 2017 http://fiddy.fastrunningblog.com/blog-11-23-2017.html <p>After a few interruptions...senior year of Atlanta woooo!</p> <p>My guess for this race was sub 1:19 so I ended up being pretty close. There was no clock at the finish line so I couldn&#39;t see how close I was and I didn&#39;t feel like sprinting because my stomach was upset.</p> <p>My stomach was bothering me pretty much all morning before the race. I thought it might be just be nerves and hoped it would go away. It never did, it just kind of got worse throughout the race. So the fact that I ran as well as I did is encouraging.</p> <p>The course was subtly changed this year, but I think it only affected mile 11. Based on my splits it could have been as much as a ten second difference.</p> <p><strong>Mile 1 (6:06;&nbsp;2016 5:51; 2015; 6:07)</strong></p> <p>As usual at the start tons of people went out really fast. The first mile is the slowest (it&#39;s the reverse of the final mile which is the fastest) so it&#39;s not like I started off really slow. There was even a guy wearing a 1:40 pace team bib next to me.</p> <p><strong>Mile 2 (6:02, 12:08; 6:01, 11:52; 6:02, 12:09)</strong></p> <p>Ran next to some Emory XC runner who was just doing a long run. I got into a nice rhythm running with him. I noticed there was a headwind. Started to get somedownhill but running with the XC runner felt too difficult. I caught up to a guy wearing a 1:30 pace team bib as well as Juan Soto. I decided that I would run with these guys for a few miles.</p> <p><strong>Mile 3&nbsp;(5:58, 18:06; 5:59, 17:51; 5:59, 18:08)</strong></p> <p>I fell behind a little getting some powerade but easily caught them again. Too easily, in fact. Juan and I ran together in the ten mile so I thought he would have no trouble hanging but he seemed to be struggling a little. I decided to just pick up the pace and run how I felt.</p> <p><strong>Mile 4&nbsp;(5:53, 23:59; 5:50, 23:41; 6:02, 24:10)</strong></p> <p>The fourth mile is very downhill and I just cruised down it without really trying. Got passed by two guys running together (Will Decamps and Whit Silby) neither of whom I knew. Looking at the results, Will beat me by 2 mins last year. For some reason I always panic during this mile and start to notice all the problems that I&#39;m having. I felt cold and that my hands were swelling (meaning low blood pressure, maybe?). I just tried to remember that I felt pretty bad at this point last year and still was ok.</p> <p><strong>Mile 5&nbsp;(6:07, 30:06; 6:01, 29:42; 6:11, 30:21)</strong></p> <p>Heading through Atlantic station I felt like there was still a slight headwind even though we were now heading east instead of north. I passed up a young guy wearing only flowery split shorts and no shirt. He was holding his stomach like he had a side stitch. That&#39;s too bad. Will and Whit passed up one guy ahead of me and were pulling away. I was now 24 seconds behind last year, but I was still ahead of 2015 pace so I figured that sub 1:20 was still doable.</p> <p><strong>Mile 6&nbsp;(6:08, 36:14; 6:16, 35:58; 6:17, 36:38)</strong></p> <p>Midtown Atlanta is on a slight rise so we have to run up and over it to get to Piedmont Park on the other side. When we hit the hill I found that I had an extra gear and managed to pick up my intensity. I briefly almost caught up to Will and Whit but my stomach wasn&#39;t having it. I did manage to catch up to Karl Burkhardt who latched on when we got to the park.</p> <p><strong>Mile 7&nbsp;(5:53, 42:07; 5:59, 41:57; 5:50, 42:28)</strong></p> <p>Going through the park Karl and I ran together I was really feeling limited now by my stomach. But I figured that 5:53 pace is pretty good. Will was 15 seconds ahead at 10K, Whit was 22 seconds ahead. I could also see Jacob Giammarco who was 23 seconds ahead and Sven Henningson who was 30 seconds ahead. Juan was only ten seconds behind me.</p> <p><strong>Mile 8&nbsp;(6:34, 48:41; 6:32, 48:29; 6:28, 48:56)</strong></p> <p>This is the toughest mile on the course, being about 80% uphill. Did not really push it that hard here but it was slower than I thought it would be. I think I was lulled into a false sense of security as I dropped Karl and passed Jacob pretty easily. I could barely see anyone anymore.</p> <p><strong>Mile 9&nbsp;(5:57, 54:38; 6:11, 54:40; 6:04, 55:00)</strong></p> <p>I did a quick self assessment. Legs felt fine, breathing was fine. My stomach was not good, so I just told myself that the faster I ran the sooner I would be done. I put in a big surge and passed up one guy who was struggling. Was pretty shocked to see how good this split was (possible tailwind).</p> <p><strong>Mile 10&nbsp;(6:08, 1:00:46; 6:20, 1:00:00; 6:14, 1:01:14)</strong></p> <p>This mile was the worst. A steep downhill followed by a gradual uphill was really not what I needed. I still felt really strong however. I got a big boost when I saw the split of 1:00:46, I knew that a sub 1:20 was pretty much guaranteed.</p> <p><strong>Mile 11&nbsp;(5:58, 1:06:44; 6:24, 1:07:24; 6:07, 1:07:21)</strong></p> <p>Really felt good now, as the miles were ticking down and I was speeding up. I wasn&#39;t really gaining on the people in front of me however.</p> <p><strong>Mile 12&nbsp;(5:57, 1:12:41; 6:08, 1:13:32; 6:04, 1:13:25)</strong></p> <p>Finally managed to catch back up to Will as well as Tim Brooks who were running side by side. I think they were both pretty beat as they just cheered me on as I went past.</p> <p><strong>Mile 13.1&nbsp;(6:25, 1:19:06; 6:32, 1:20:04; 6:29, 1:19:54)</strong></p> <p>This last mile has quite a bit of downhill. If it wasn&#39;t for my stomach, I probably had enough left to run in the 5:30s. Instead I manged a 5:49. I also had a brief moment of doubt. My splits from miles 10,11 and 12 seemed unrealistically fast so I was concerned that they were wrong and we were about to get a long mile to make up for it (it&#39;s happened to me before) so I didn&#39;t really start to kick until the last 30 seconds.</p> <p>I ended up 12th overall (the results say 13th but they also say that some guy ran 2 min/mile for the second half). Despite closing well I hardly passed anyone which I think is a reflection of the wind being with us in the second half. Even though I was limited by my stomach I&#39;m not disappointed at all as the race still went really well.</p> <table border="1" cellpadding="1" cellspacing="1" style="width: 500px;"> <tbody> <tr>
