<p>Beautiful day for running in Atlanta this morning.  Had a pace group run at 8:00 this morning at Ansley Mall.  Temps at 40 degrees, but sunny and warming up quickly.  I was very comfortable running in shorts and short sleeve shirt.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm the pacer for the 2 1/2 hour half marathon group and our final pace run was this morning.   The marathon/half is March 20.  The group had an option for a 10 or 13 mile run.  They started out only wanting to do the 10 but fortunately I took the 13 mile route along with me just in case.  At mile 8 they all decided they wanted to do 13 miles instead so we did.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>About 2/3 of the run was on the actual Georgia Marathon Course, going through Piedmont Park, the Georgia Tech Campus, and passed by the finish line at Centennial Olympic Park.   A few of the runners had never ran the course before so I pointed out the trouble spots and the easier spots along the course for them.   Publix had food, drinks and coffee after the run.</p>

<p>Nice job, GR.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I had the Race Judicata 5k and 10k this morning.  Every year a bunch of us run the double.  The 5k is at 8am and the 10k at 9am.  You get a special extra if you run both.  Last year it was a beach towel, and this year it was a running skull cap.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Anyway, it's an extremely hilly course--the same park that the Flying Monkey goes through.  I totally wrecked myself on the 5k, and was pleased that I survived the 10k.  23:57 and 51:18; second in my age group on both races. </p>

<p> Well, I try to be modest about my marathon times.   I assume everyone runs 2 1/2 hour marathons. <span><img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;">  I corrected my post to the 2 1/2 hour <strong>half marathon.</strong></span><br><br>
