I purposely ran this run slow as practice for this Saturday's race; I want to keep between 11 and 12 min miles (maybe 13 even) for the first 7 miles.  After that, I'll let the chips fall where they may and ignore the "too fast" pace alarm.

There are two reasons for this plan:  The weather is supposed to be warm (hot by my standards) and the course is a bit hilly (I don't have any hills that I run on.)  I figure that I can also adjust my second half to what ever I wish; I just hope that I can maintain a somewhat faster rate than 11 min/mile.

But I'll be happy if I:
1. Don't stop
2. Don't walk.
3 Don't die.

...and beat 2:47:13...
