Today Charles, Matt and Nacho ran the Staten Island Half marathon. I am writing this from a Lanai (porch) overlooking the Pacific ocean in Kailua-Kona, where I raced THE Ironman yesterday.
Charles, Matt and Nacho rocked! it. Our race plan was to test a very aggressive race pace to see if we could target a 3.30 marathon in 20 days in NY. I felt that if it works, it will be a huge confidence booster, if it doesn’t, we would still have time to revise our plan. And yes! it worked. Charles ran a new personal best half marathon time in 1.39, tells me he felt great and had a little speed in reserve. So mission accomplished! I am very excite for our little marathon coming up! Way to go Charles.
Look out for a race report by Charles tomorrow!
