I went out aggressively for a couple reasons. Before the race, I decided to start with the 3:05 pace bunny and try to hold on; with the forecast of high winds and wanting to get into a rhythm early on, I figured that running with a group would have its benefits. When I got to the corral in the morning, I was late and pushed to the back. It took me a while to get up to the pace bunny and when I started running with the group, I realised that they were under pace, at times doing 4:15/km. Sure, it felt okay for the first few kilometers, and sure, the prospect of running an unexpected sub-3 marathon was blindly exciting; I stayed with them for a while, especially since the high buildings and my Garmin were not making friends, but as the pace showed no signs of leveling out to an actual 3:05 finish, I bailed on that group and decided to run my own race.
Walter Faion has joined the Club as the new
Distance / Marathon Coach
For Walter, marathon running and coaching is more than a job – it has been his way of life for many years: He has run marathons all over the world (39 of them so far) and has a PB of 2:28. Walter has also run too many half-marathons to count – the fastest in 1:08. He trained with world-class runners and has coached runners for several years.
