atta go man. Just keep your focus on what you are doing at every second. Don't let your mind wander.
Keep the pace slow. Run at a pace that you feel you could hold forever.
Most importantly, when the gun goes off and the crowd heads for the starting line, stay where you are. In fact, get in the very back of the pack. Let the entire pack go past you before you even start to run.
You want to avoid getting sucked into the fast start and ruin any chance you may have in the first mile.
Eat lots of pizza and spaghetti. and drink a fair amount of beer - but not in the last few days before the race.
Good luck man. Oh, carry moleskin to put on your feet when you start to feel hot spots.
Get a new pair of well cushioned shoes -NOW and break them in.
