3M easy with Jeremy on warm and windy day along the boardwalk on VA Beach. Nice to run with someone. Met his lovely wife Rachel and friends Chuck and Jill who had just finished the 8K race.
Went to the expo and checked in, met a few of the ladies I will be pacing. Rick and Steve were very gracious to arrange for a room for me on the boardwalk so I don't have to drive 10 miles down to the start. Weather tomorrow is still looking rough, but hopefully the course will help with wind breaks where we head into it and have the wind at our backs from 16 miles on.
My bag has arrived in Norfolk, just not to me yet. I will hang in the HGI for a while see if it shows up before I head back off to the expo to see where I will be staying and to hit the dinner tonight (maybe lounge by the beach).
At the marathoners dinner, met a lot of the elite women and got to know each other a little and talk race strategy. Also, the Hanson-Brooks Distance Project team was there for the HM and I talked with them for a while and got a picture with the team! I also met and talked with John Piggott (a great runner from VA) who is a very nice guy (sponsored by marathonguide.com).
total time: 25:40ish (Tangents - 157 miles)
