Daniels Park - 3:00 p.m.
low 40's, partly cloudy, mucky mud
mind/body - Very strong
When I started this run I was set to do 12 myles no matter how I felt. As I got going I kept checking my mile splits because I felt fast. The longer I went, the stronger I felt. So ended up doing 16 and getting a PR for this course by 2 1/2 minutes! 6:57 average with first/last splits 6:44/6:36. Not too shabby for a 38 y.o. amateur - eh? That's right mom - 38! Speaking of age, I sent in my application for Collegiate Peaks and had to count from 1969 to 2008 to figure I was actually 38 - I couldn't remember if I was going to be 38 or 39 this year. Senile dementia settin' in already. I should hit 85 myles this week, if I can remember to run...
