What a beautiful morning! There was a slight chill in the air and the humidity was way down, perfect weather for some early-morning rock pushin’! There were 20 men taking advantage of the opportunity and laying down some miles.
I was thinking last night that I wanted to do 4 miles this morning, something I haven’t done in about 8 months. I woke up a little sore and tight from yesterday’s Q and was not feeling it. Thanks to Mayor for running with me and pushing (and dragging) me to my goal today. I would not have done 4 miles if it were not for him. It’s interesting that, as we regrouped post-run, his watch showed he ran about 1/8th mile further and his first mile pace was about 30 seconds faster than mine, despite the fact that we were literally running beside each other! Weird stuff but that that’s just noise. Bottom line is we both got a good run in.
Also, shout out to the FNG Mini Blind for putting in 4 miles with us on his first day! He’s in pretty good shape and he’s going to be a runner!
Despite me trying to skip him in the nameorama – Broke was definitely there and he did his usual “I’m gonna run slow” before running 5 miles in the 7s.
