All we have to do before the snap is see which side of the formation to run to.  An easy way to do that is to just count how many defenders are on each side and run to whichever side has the fewest defenders.  In this situation, we decide to run the ball to the left.

You can see how big the running lane is immediately after we snap the ball.  Just hit the hole as quickly as you can.
