Our goal this year was simple: Both kids wanted to PR. Last year we all ran together and Vincent sprinted ahead the last bit. This year the plan was for Vince to just go off from the start and run his own race without all the dancing and split jumps and running from one side of the road to another like he did before. ha. I was running with Victoria and using our pacing strategy from our practice runs. We were going to go just fast enough for a PR time and then if she had anything left the last 200m to kick it into gear. We were also NOT going to use run/walk intervals but just run steady.
We arrived downtown about an hour before start time and spent some time wandering around and watching everything get set up.
