Racing 26.2 soon? Leave your GPS at home.

Can you offer more on how and when you modify your strategy for seasoned runners? Do you still suggest pacing by feel on race day, as opposed to predicted numbers based on training? And how early for orange (moderate effort) and red zones (hard effort) in a marathon? I'm curious whether the strategy truly differs. For example, even though a trained runner will run faster than when she was untrained, doesn't even a trained runner need to guard against orange and red zones too early? Is the difference mental, in that a seasoned runner will better focus and ignore the body's signals to slow, so can afford to enter orange earlier? Any guidance before Marine Corps is much appreciated! ~ Will
