Race Pace

2019 Races in Lexington and surrounding areas

Pick a race and go run it. See how you do. Use this first race as a baseline. Then pick a race several months in the future and register. Registering ahead of time will give you a monetary incentive to stick with your training. Set an achievable goal for that race and train for it. Before you know it, you’ll be in better shape.
