So these are my splits from the 6 main aid stations at JFK, and then my finishing times and overall average pace. Apparently I cut a lot of time out on the trail portion last year, and I doubt that I will be able to get much faster than that this year. I am looking to take most of the time off on the towpath. It is pretty much an easy solution to do that – run more and run faster, while walking less. Basically on the towpath that all comes down to a mental game, so who knows. I’ve done the training, now it’s time to relax and trust in the taper. Yay.
