Putting Things Into Perspective

Jan 7th, 2011 - I was looking at my splits from last night's track workout and I came to the sad realization that I'll never be able to break the current Boston Marathon course record of 2:05:52.

My final 400 interval last night was in a blazing 1:11, which equates to a 4:46 per mile pace. I gave everything I had and even left a piece of my sole out on that track.

Well, guess what the average per mile pace of the record Boston Marathon run by Robert Kiprono Cheruiyot in 2010 was?

4:48 per mile over 26.2 MILES!

So you ARE fast enough for it, just gotta hold that last 25.2 miles.

Correction, hold it for the last 25.97, but that's usually where I cramp up.
