I contacted my Galloway program director and asked how fast a "miracle mile" I need to run to move up a pace group. I told him I'd run a 9:06 mile on the TM on Monday and asked if that would do it, feeling confident I could replicate that time on the ground. My current assignment is based on the 9:44 minute mile I ran in June.
He e-mailed me back and told me not to wait until our next miracle mile challenge. He assigned me to Jan's group based on my HM time. Jan is the great lady I ran with after her New York Marathon was cancelled; she has been running for many, many years. She and two other long time runners about my age ran a 2:32 Space Coast Half Marathon. He pointed out that my 2:37 St Pete Women's Half is close and I should fit right in with that group!!
Oh, wow! I'm going to be running regularly with people I admire so much. This is going to be much more challenging. Can't wait to run on Saturday!
