8 on the 8th
This is my lame-ass race report for Non Runner's Nancy's virtual race. I kinda of screwed up my plans to run this race. I went for my 34K run on Thursday, which only turned out to be 27.6K when the torental rain and lightning rolled in. This screwed up my plans for the rest of the week since I wanted to make up my mileage somewhere.
So Friday was a rest day, and Saturday was just busy, so I had to tie in my virtual race with my 22K run this Sunday.
So I just kept an eye on my Garmin. I was at 8 miles at 1 hour 17 minutes, 7 seconds. I actually would have been there sooner, but I was stopped by a freaking 3 minute traffic light! Then again, maybe the light helped me recover, who knows.
I wish I had some spirit and some neat pictures to go with the race, but I don't. Thanks Nancy for organizing, I don't think I would have pushed this hard if you hadn't.
On the up side, aren't these cooler temperatures nice for us Southern Ontario folks? Love that the runs are a little easier.
Thanks for reading!
