Grea race I got what I asked for Hills pain and the state of Missouri. The weather wasn't the best 53 deg rain and 14mph wind. I learned from this race that while its not a bad idea to use the pace group I must make sure to check early on what they are doing. My pacer ran the first 5k in 25 minuts while we were shooting for 22.30 then he started running a 6:55-7:15 pace through steep down town hills. I know I should just fight the hills and the wind and get under 3:30 some how on my own. After leaving the pace group I felt the benifit of the high mileage. I was able to keep an even pace through all the hills and wind to the finish line. Heart rate stayed between 150-160 for 7:15-7:45 pace and I didn't want to push any harder since I was to far behind for a greate time.

Wow! Strong racing, Yasir! Congratulations! And smart making the mid-race adjustment! You asked for hills and pain?

Nice work, Yasir! I never found running in a pace group all that helpful as they usually start too fast. It helps to find different groups of people to run with throughout the race. You made the right call.

That's another state added too!
