My next race in town this year will be the Guilford Savings Bank 4 Miler with a 9:15 start time from Jacob's Beach.
Directions: Exit 58, turn south on 77 to the Guilford Green, a right on Broad Street than a quick left onto Whitfield and follow straight, bearing right to Seaside Ave just after the Spaceship Condos. ( M A P )
In 2006 this was my first bump up in distance after doing a few 5k's and my time didn't suffer much, came in at 9:05 a mile. Fast for me but slow enough to keep me in the bottom 25%. With three months left before the race I will search the net for speed increasing techniques and try to implemented a few in my training. Based on last years attendance of 210 runner my target for 2007 will be to finish in the top 100.
