Huntsville, AL. It was cool out this morning (30) but no wind. Just did a easy 4 miles to shake out the legs before the marathon. Also, did a few strides toward the end. I felt good and ready to go for tomorrow. It has cooled down some here so probably will be in the low 30's for the start and warm up into the 40's by the finish. A little cooler than I was hoping but still real good. I am still thinking my best strategy is to run easy the first half and then see what I can do from there. Both marathons I have ran I have struggled toward the end and need to make sure that I hold enough back to be able to hold my pace at the finish. The BQ is the goal (3:20) so I will run for that time and if I feel good toward the end try to pick it up. Would love to run a negitive split but we will see. Main thing for me is I want to enjoy this one. Like I said I have ran two marathons and both were a death march the last 10k so I don't want to repeat that.
