As a mid-pack runner I fell that we can most surely race and not chase.  I raced hard at Al's run trying to outrun enough people to make the top 100 and got knocked out by one person to put me at 101.  I keep an eye on splits sometimes to ensure I go out at the right pace – near the end I pay no attention to splits and give it every last ounce I can.  At last year's Al's Run I couldn't stand for a couple minutes when I crossed the finish line my legs were wobbly and I couldn't catch my breath – that is not chasing – that is racing!
