Pre Race Plans and the next week

Weather is shaping up nice for AR with partly cloudy, moderate temps and nice dry trails.  I have been reviewing what I want to achieve for this 50mile race.  I know the course well. Understanding that the first 26 miles are really where you will make time.  Reviewing past race info you find that the time from Beals to the finish is =to your time to beals + 40minutes -1:20=your finish time ex...4:30 for the first 26.5 + 5:10 for the last 23.5=9:40finish.  Of course there are faster more even splits but not many runners if any will run faster on the second half.  With that in mind I have a few simple goals...Get to Beals in 4:15-4:30, Get to Rattle about 7-7:30 and give myself 50minutes to climb from the river to the finish.  Just get in under 10hrs. I am excited to see how I run the next weekend in the canyons...I hope to have a few pics but if I am running fast none till I get to the finish...
