26.2 miles in Austin this Sunday. I leave tonight. And after being diagnosed by a few runners with “IT Band” injury (which as Jules says, “sounds made up!!!”), the goals for this race have changed drastically from the last. My mindset is as follows: Don’t hurt yourself. Keep putting one foot in front of the other. One step at a time.
Under 3:11? Not a chance. But maybe under 5:11…!!!
