Coach Nick & I are training on the Akron Marathon Course today. I mapped out a "There & Back" course. We started at Sand Run Parkway and ran to Market Street and back. This section has a slight incline all the way to Market. Nick's going to set a new PR for his marathon time 3:30. I'm going to try to break 4:00 mark. Last year my time was 4:17.
We cover 8 miles in 1:19 (Including Nick's bathroom break). Map of the route we ran.
Our next Akron Marathon Training run will be Monday Aug. 7, 2007 at 5:00 AM. We will meet at the Akron Art Museum, then run south. We will run an 8 mile loop that covers Firestone Park & Akron U. Anyone can join in on the fun. Call me or email me to let me know.
