Three Things Thursday: By a minute
On Monday, I crossed the finish line of my third marathon of 2013 and, for the third time this year, I crossed the line in 2:01.While I was using the Oak Brook race as a supported and safe training run during a weekend getaway, I had hoped to also work on pacing and negative splits to come in under 2 hours. I wanted to start out controlled, come up to pace from miles 5 to10 and bring it home in the last 5K. I wanted to break my post-baby rut of plus-2 half marathons.It was a sound plan and one that seemed to be working, sort of, as I started the race. . . .
