Jeff’s Post – Pace Yourself – Pace Yourself – Pace Yourself!!!

Tamara and I arrived in Richmond this afternoon,  made a quick trip to the Expo and arrived at our hotel downtown.  We are both excited about our events tomorrow.  Tamara is running the 8k and I’m running my second Marathon in a month.  We had a nice relaxing afternoon.  We found the start line, finish line and found a good place to eat (Bottoms Up).  It is going to be cold in the morning (around 34 degrees) so we spent a bit of time this afternoon deciding what to wear and throw away along the way.  Tamara has also spent the last hour trying to figure out where she can run and jump in with me along the course (I think she is more stressed about that than her race).

I really feel so much more relaxed this time around.  The lessons learned from my last marathon are fresh in my mind.  I really want to take everything in this time around and I also plan on repeating the following over and over again – Pace Yourself, Pace Yourself, Pace Yourself!!

Looking forward to a great running day tomorrow!
