I knew if I didn't meet someone that I wouldn't get up and out this morning, so thanks to everyone who accepted my invitation to come run! I couldn't/wouldn't have done it without you!
I had a great run and despite my legs still feeling like I was running at mile 20 only about 3 miles in, I had a wonderful time chatting with some of my favorite running buddies. Even though my breathing was more like I was racing a 5K than on a leisurely Saturday run.
My biggest recollection this run was when Maynard pointed out that Smooth had just ran over (literally, OVER) a snake and I looked down and freaked out as I saw it slither away! I HATE snakes!!! I think I would've screamed if I wasn't breathing so hard. Got a nice adrenaline shot that carried me through the next mile :)
It was nice to see the 8's again for an AP. Maybe just barely an 8, but it was still nice. Thanks again Smooth, Karen, Maynard, Scott, Chad and Annette for a great run!!
AP: 8:58 splits: 9:05, 8:53, 8:57, 9:02, 8:51, 8:55, 9:00, 9:00, 8:52, 9:11, 9:08, 8:41 (I tried to keep up with Smooth's final push, but just didn't have it in my legs! Nice to see the last mile the fastest though. I may recover some speed after all)
