Reaching 1,243 in 2008 -- one day, one week, one mile at a time.
I'm doing my first trail race on the 8th of September. The Montrail Run Like A Girl 8k in the Boston area. The event link is below. Most of my training has been on roads (some dirt country roads -- a lot in city streets and bikepaths) and so I'm wondering how to adjust my pace expectations. Any thoughts? I don't think this trail is going to be very technical (forest roads, fields, along beaver ponds) but since I've never done this before I'm not sure how to adjust my pace expectations. Any advice would be greatly appreciated, and if you're going to be there, let me know that too!!
