Adjusting Your Race Plan on the Fly

April 20, 2022

Going into every race, it’s important to have a plan.  But let’s face it, sometimes races don’t go as planned.  So when that happens, what do you do?  How do you adjust on the fly or do damage control?

If you’ve been racing long enough, you’ll have picked up some things along the way.  With each race, you learn something new.  Earlier this week at the Boston Marathon, my race didn’t go quite as planned, but I was able to adjust on the fly and still have a good day.  As an added bonus, I learned a couple things, and so it ended up being a valuable experience from a couple of different perspectives. If you can achieve most of your goals AND learn something? Well then, I’d call that a darn good race day.

March 21, 2022
