Thanks so much to the 8 minute mile pacers - I was doing a good run, and on target for the magical sub-3.30, but started to blow it 4 miles from the finish. I was thrilled to see the pacers arrive alongside me.  

It was hell to try to keep up with them becasue the next mile was done in 7.37, but I knew I had to in order to achieve my goal... After that the last two miles were easier and I achieved 3:28.  

Thanks very very much guys!!!   Shirley C
