I remember at XC Regionals my sophomore year (back in the mid 80's) one of the teams was measuring out the course and marking the km marks. My teammates and I joked about this, but in retrospect, I think it was pretty smart. Who knows how many of my races could have been saved from the usual crash-and-burn if I had found out 1km in that I was going way too fast instead of hitting that first mile marker at 5:05 and realizing that no amount of HTFU was going to save me from imploding over the last 2.1 miles.
