I did not realize it when I signed up for the race but it is an IAAF Gold race. it was headlined by Fireiwot Dado Tufa who lays claim to a win at the New York City Marathon and a 2:23:15 PR. That’s the long way of saying that this was not the kind of race where I would be racing for any kind of placement. This one was all about getting in a big workout before Boston and getting a little redemption after disappointments racing in The Netherlands (DNF: Rotterdam 2009) and Italy (3:48:32: Napoli 2012). My seeding time had placed me in Corral A so this... a day or two before the race I plotted out each kilometer of the course and set a goal time, fast time and slow time and come up with a plan to run ~3:02. That goal of running a PR as a workout in the Boston build-up was a bit of a stretch. About 200m after the start line I found myself running just a little behind and to the left of the 3:00 pacer so I threw out my race strategy and decided to forget about my splits and let the pacer do the work. I figured that as long as I stayed behind him but kept him in sight that everything would work out OK. I only get a few short days on this earth so I figured that if we’re going to pin numbers on our chests I might as well race.
