Run Day 97 – Cleveland 10 Miler

I went with a new race strategy today. I decided I would start slow and pick it up along the way. On longer runs I usually just start out as fast as possible and see what will happen.  Well the new strategy worked. This was the second year I ran the Cleveland 10 Miler and I was able to cut my average down to 9:14 from 9:21 last year. I felt great in the second 5 miles and kicked up the pace near the end. My last two miles were 8:51 and 8:39 averages. I remember struggling last year in the last two miles and hanging on just hoping not to blowup near the finish.

I was very happy with the pace because it was at my half marathon goal pace of two hours. I guess a little bit of strategy can make a race a whole lot more fun. It was an amazing morning to run like a god.

Decide to dominate!
