I am planning to run the Richmond Marathon on Saturday, November 10, 2012.

My goal for this marathon is to break 4 hours. That means I have to run the full 26.2 miles at a 9:09 pace. This is more than 30 seconds per mile faster than my best marathon. It is going to take a great deal of training to cut that much time off my current PR, but I'm game for at least trying.

To help me meet this goal, I joined a running group. We meet every Saturday morning at 6am for our weekly long run.

This past Saturday we ran 10 miles.

After one run, I am on pace to reach my goal!

Next Saturday we are doing another 10 miles (this time hills).

I can't wait.

I found that my time got significantly faster after I joined a running group. I think it had to do with the fact that I just ran with them...there was no time for me to put restrictions on my pace due to fear. You did great!!!
