We were asked to select our 3 top choices of running position back in April. I got my first choice: Runner #1. I wanted to be in van 1 and experience the race from start to finish.
Runner 1 is the "easiest" position according to the ranking of the race website. Total mileage is 13.6 miles.
I will run leg 1, 13 and 25.
LEG 1 is one of 5 VERY HARD legs in the race.
It is 5.64 miles of very severe downhill ( from 6000 to 4000 ft).
I know I will be in pain after this one and I need to make sure I do everything to prepare for this. I am doing the exercices my PT gave me for my groin. I am already doing a lot better. Today I went for 4 miles. It was the first time in a while that I ran 3 days in a row and I am planning on going tomorrow as well. I am keeping the mileage low and I keep doing the 1 min walking breaks at each mile.
LEG 13 is 4.21 miles and LEG 25 is 3.75 miles.
