I ran a 13K (8 miles) today. It was the last of a 3-part race series I signed up for. Being that my marathon is next weekend, I decided not to race today...but to pace a friend who wanted to come in under 1:30. It was going to be 8 nice easy miles to wrap up my training for MCM. I felt so strong today! I easily could have went much more. I barely broke a sweat!
What a treat today was...perfect running weather. I helped my friend finish strong and come in at 1:29 and change. I was stunned when I found out I took second in my age group for the race series. A perfect day, indeed.
And on that high note, I'll say I'm done. No more running until the start line on 10/30. Semper Fi!!
