And in the POURING rain, to boot! But it was about 65 degrees, so that's not too bad. Made for wet, heavy shoes, though.
I ran the first 7 easy and then tried to knock off 50 seconds or so per mile for 6. I did 4. The last two, well...I was just outta steam. I did the last 3 easy for a cooldown, but I had to estimate the distance and time because my Garmin battery died after 11.5 miles. Man, how did I ever run before my Forerunner? I am such a dork with the data!
I'm not gonna lie. Part of me wondered, how on earth am I going to do all 13.1 miles faster than this? I am panting like a dog and I'm freakin' EXHAUSTED. Can I do it? But I've now ran three separate times OVER the distance. I know I can go the distance...but from there, I have no idea.
I don't know. I guess we'll find out. But race day always has a little magic to it, right?
