My Hood to Coast team starts at 12:00 (noon) tomorrow; the weather is supposed to be perfect for running, I'm really excited. My goal is to run an 8:30 average pace for my three legs; I think this is doable but we will see for sure.
Leg 10 6.19 miles Moderate
Begin at approximately 7:43 p.m. Friday evening
Long leg mostly along Springwater Trail then city streets over relatively rolling and flat terrain. Water will not
be provided. Plan ahead if needed.
Leg 22 6.81 Hard
Begin at approximately 5:15 a.m. Saturday
Gradual up and downhills on paved but narrow back country roads.
Leg 34 4.13 Moderate
Begin at approximately 2:20 p.m. Saturday
Very short leg in length with gently rolling hills along paved country roads.
We are projected to finish around 4:51 p.m. Saturday; of course, this implies that EVERYONE runs the EXACT pace they submitted. Yeah right...
I wish I could figure out how to paste in the elevation charts, but I can't - EPIC FAIL. I have a pretty good climb on my second leg, but is has an awesome and long downhill that follows the evil climb.
Hopefully I will have fun photos and a great race report next week. Have a great weekend.
