Expected pace information

I posted this on Facebook this morning in case anyone I know will be spectating. Please also refer to this post for more spectating information.

I will be running my first marathon this Sunday, and I'm super excited. I know many people in Sacramento go out to watch the race (some from bars), and I wanted to share when I expect to be at locations along the course in case anyone I know is out there. Look for me if you are- I'm sure I'll need the support. I will be in pretty much the same outfit as my profile picture (bright yellow shirt), so I should be hard to miss.

I did a rough estimate based on my expected pace, so these times are the earliest I expect to be at each mile marker. I should be within a few minutes if I fall behind.

Mile 1: 7:08
Mile 2: 7:16
Mile 3: 7:25
Mile 4: 7:33
Mile 5: 7:41
Mile 6: 7:50
Mile 7: 7:58
Mile 8: 8:07
Mile 9: 8:15
Mile 10: 8:23 (Old Fair Oaks)
Mile 11: 8:32
Mile 12: 8:40
Mile 13: 8:49 (approx. Fair Oaks & Manzanita)
Mile 14: 8:57
Mile 15: 9:05
Mile 16: 9:14 (right before Fair Oaks & Arden)
Mile 17: 9:22
Mile 18: 9:31
Mile 19: 9:39 (right before Fair Oaks & Watt)
Mile 20: 9:47 (Loehmann's Plaza)
Mile 21: 9:56
Mile 22: 10:04 (H Street Bridge)
Mile 23: 10:12 (along J Street, turn to L at Alhambra)
Mile 24: 10:21 (along L Street)
Mile 25: 10:29 (along L Street)

Maps and road closure information are available at I hope to see you there, and let me know if I should look out for you!
