I am doing some local DC roadrunners race this sat in Bluemont Park in Arlington. Its a 12k and I will use it strictly as a tempo since I have not done one this week. Probably 6 minute pace at most.
I know next week many of you are doing the GW1oK against the vaunted Pacers. Susannah suggested that she, myself and one other run the Georgewashington marathon relay race the next day. If I did this I would skip the 10k. In any case, Jim Hage and Luke Merkel's parents have the record of 2:36, that dates back to 1989. I think each person needs to run about a 5;55 mile over 9 miles to get best their mark. This is very feasable. In any case, if someone out there is interested, this is a chance to make history.
