Last walk before The Texas Marathon

I did six more miles at the track today as my last walk before the marathon. It's been a light week (only walked Wednesday and Friday) and I'll take tomorrow off completely. Then Sunday morning at 7:30 am we'll hit the streets for the race.

Distance: 6.1 miles
Time: 1:09:00
Pace: 11:18

I'm feeling good and feel confident I can meet my goal time (5:00, 11:27 pace) if I just control my fatigue in the later miles and try to minimize the bonk. I've got supplies to keep me nourished and keep my electrolytes balanced, so I think I'm ready to go. I'll post the results on Sunday.
