2010 Rocket City Marathon

Rob and I headed to Huntsville, AL on Friday morning. It was about a 500 mile drive and we enjoyed the conversation as we drove across southern Missouri, portions of Arkansas, Tennessee and into Alabama.


We had a room at the LaQuinta Inn. We had a very nice dinner at Olive Garden and left the restaurant stuffed.

Going into this marathon, I was pretty set on run/walking a 4 min/1min. I set my Garmin up to pace myself at a 9:00 min/mile pace while running and 16 min/mile pace. This was a great strategy. I actually negative split for the first time in all of my marathons. It proved to me that I can run faster if I will do some speed work.
