Another recommendation for the Higdon training models. You don't have to run race-pace very often, especially early on. Just get in some miles, let your body adjust (especially your heart - aerobic ability - and then your leg muscles). For a June race, you could start to fine-tune your training in late April and May ...some shorter, harder runs, maybe some hill work (or stairs), maybe a few longer runs that exceed the distance. Really, if you give it any sort of commitment, you'll be fine. As noted, 10 minute miles isn't much at all ..slower than that either includes some walking or reflects no leg lift.
Peggy Noonan: "(Hillary) proudly quotes a speech she gave in 2008. 'You will always find me on the front lines of democracy - fighting for the future.' ...Why do Democratic politicians talk like this about themselves, putting themselves and their drama at the ego-filled center, instead of policy ideas, larger meanings, the actual state of the country? In this she is just like Barack Obama."
