If you have a great race, YOU SHOULD BE MOTIVATED to keep the ball rolling. If you have a poor race, YOU SHOULD BE MOTIVATED to get rid of that awful taste in your mouth. Mediocre race, YOU SHOULD BE MOTIVATED knowing that great race could be next. YOU SHOULD BE MOTIVATED.

There should be no shame in taking walking breaks. My son Kevin ran 2:18 and qualified for the Olympic Trials taking short breaks at aid stations. I nailed a 2:29 at age 49 following the same strategy. @JeffGalloway has taught zillions of marathoners how to run/walk
