60 degrees. September is here and I hope to stay. I was mentally tired but the legs felt better than yesterday. Had to work early so no extra miles unfortunately.

Last run with the group I will be pacing next week! They are excited to run their first marathon. Some axious feelings but they are ready. Morning was perfect. 43 at the start! I can only hope next week will be that cool. They did well and ran faster than they are used to (9:30) Yes that is slow, but for a group of non-runners with a desire to try a marathon I think that is great. Plus itwill keep me from trying to race it and let me keep it fun!

Race: Air Force Marathon (26.2 Miles) 04:21:00

Today was the day my group I have been training was to run their first marathon. My official goal for them was... 'beat Oprah' ... and they did. I was the pacer and the pace I wanted them to hold was sub 10:00. Keep in mind they are young, and it was a bucket list for them. Yes they trained hard but nothing like many train on the blog so that was a big goal for them. Still waiting for the official results, but I have us at 9:57/mile and they were thrilled! 

I really did enjoy pacing and soaking in the race while motivating them. I have a gift for talking too much and did plenty of jokes, stories and personal experiences. This was fun and helped them through the end. I figured I did something right as true to form I made their last mile the fastest. 7:59. That was big for them, nice to see excited faces. Lewis, the one guy, already wanted to run another one at a real pace. I said that takes dedicated training, but I'd love to pace again. 

Overall good day.

Good morning to run. Legs getting some spring back, but still will be a few days or so until I feel like putting in more. Interesting run from subdivision to roads to bike path to trails to road to home... fun!
