5. Run at Someone elseโ€™s Pace

Near the end of each race I do, I focus on a runner a couple feet ahead of me, and try to slowly catch them, then pass them by picking up my pace just a little bit.

This is quite different than trying to match someone elseโ€™s pace from the start line.

Even when youโ€™re just doing your morning jog, itโ€™s important to realize that we each have our own pace โ€“ mine is an unimpressive 10:30 mile โ€“ and that pace is natural.

Yes, step it up on race day, but donโ€™t try to match someone else, someone faster, from the get-go.
