Oh man! Ran #trails4tailsfest this morning. Came in 1st overall in the difficult and technical trail 5k. Finished 6th or 7th, 2nd in my AG, in the 15k. The 15k had mostly flat and runnable trails, I just didn’t have the speed on those portions but I made up a lot of ground during the technical spots. Out of the both races I was 1st overall! My goal was to take these races easy due to #MCM being next week so I didn’t push it as much as I could have, I wanted to be safe, but once I hit those trails I just had to pick it up a bit. I feel great. 2 bottles of wine, one for each of the overall wins. It’s going to be a good night! Go Ravens!
LBI 18 Miler. 2:37:18, 56 of 460. That was a lot harder than I thought it would be. Started off feeling great and then the sun came out around mile 3, by mile 5 I was overheating. Drank at every water station and poured water on me to keep myself cool. The water cause my socks and shoes to get soaked which led to blisters. I am sunburnt and hours later I am still warm. I’m happy with my pace, I’ve run 18 miles a few times during training in easier conditions and today’s pace was a few seconds faster. Overall it was a good run.
