Ok, here we go, one more group run before the KDF mini marathon. This is your last chance to fine tune things a little before race day. Use this opportunity to finalize your pre-run breakfast/bathroom ritual, clothing specifics for race day and most importantly, what to eat and drink while out on the course to maximize your potential. I also want you to push the pace and run at race pace. Use the same walk/run ratio that you plan to use next weekend for the mini. Just in case some of you still have questions about race prep or nutrition on the run, check out our Online Running Manual (pages 39-51 for nutrition & 65-67 for race prep)
The mileage for this week is 8 miles. Click HERE to view the course map.
Don’t forget, you can still pick up your free pair of Smartwool socks at Ken Combs Running Store. They have a master list of everyone in the group. Stop by ASAP to pick them up.
Once again, I can’t stress enough the importance of recognizing our sponsors. Without these people, this program would not be possible. Here is a list with links for more information about each company.

Don’t forget to study up. Our sponsors have put together what we believe to be the most comprehensive Online Running Manual available. All of your running/walking questions can be answered in this manual. Use the link above to start enjoying this valuable resource.
One more thing, don’t forget to register for the Triple Crown and Mini marathon as soon as you can. The mini marathon in particular will sell out very soon. The longer you wait, the more expensive it gets. See the links below for registration info.
