Wow - so much for my "let's do an easy run and have fun" speech.
We rocked the course today - just under 12 miles, just under 2 hours: that's a 10:03 min/mile pace.
Uh, we're supposed to run 10:18, right? Right! Today's run was the best by far. Our little pack of runners was huge - so many people there, we all ran together for most of it and we talked the whole way. Thanks so much for being there today, it's the best way to spend a Sunday.
Except for sleeping in, but that's what naps are for.
Stay healthy, stay intact, and if you are hurting, keep yourself slow and ready. We have one month, we're in the best shape we've been all year, now we taper and maintain. Keep the weekday miles up, keep your legs on ice, your refrigerator full of good fruits and vegetables, and have your friends come out to cheer you on.
You are all ready for this!
Ryan the Terrible,
proud Fearless Leader,
