Race Tips from Sarasota Music Half Marathon's John Korff

Coconut Telegraph

There’s less than a month to go before the February 7 Sarasota Music Half Marathon.  Whether you’re a walker or a runner you should be doing longer weekend run/walks of 10-12 miles, stretch and ice anything that ails you and begin to taper (reduce your mileage) two weeks before the race.  Don’t panic because you feel you haven’t done enough miles.  The rule of thumb is you can run three times your average distance.  You may not be able to dance that night but take solace in your training. If you’re walking in the Music Half Marathon remember that a street walk is 20 minutes per mile.  You need to average 18 minutes/mile to meet the four hour cutoff.  It’s not that hard but you have to stay on pace.  You can dance, wave, party and play but keep moving. Headphones aren’t necessary on race day.  You’ll pass bands 42 times during the 13.1 half marathon.

If you have been a patient at Sarasota Memorial, perhaps you can look back to when the care you received exceeded your expectations. Maybe it was kind words from a doctor or nurse, the patience of a technologist who took the time to explain a procedure, or a volunteer, housekeeper or food service
