So we had our Marathon relay yesterday. Our team was Jerry, Jim, and MWMFN. I planned on doing half of the marathon, and they decided I would be doing the final half. Either way it is fine. I ran the half in like 1:55. I mapped the run, and it was closer to 12-something. Who knows though?? I don't really care either way. A couple notes on the run is Jerry was running good. Jim, and MWMFN ran with Jerry when he had around 5 miles in or so, so he was a hard man for them to keep up with. A pretty good warm up. He stopped around 12 miles or so, as he was having a leg issue. I got to run with Jim after he had around 8 miles in or so. He dropped me a couple times to say the least. I was not going to try to keep up with him, when I still had 11-12 miles left. I am smart I know. :) Most of my run was done solo. If the gmaps mileage is correct than I was at like 9:30 pace, but if it was 13.1 then I was under 9:00 pace. I don't know, don't really care. For the first half of my half I used the yaks, because 66th st. does not get a lot of traffic, so plenty of snow and ice. I took the Yaks off once I hit the Yacht Club. South Shore Drive gets traffic so it was clear for the most part. One more note to myself. EAT BREAKFAST if you run LONG'ish!!! :) So yeah my only fuel for my run was water, a couple sips of gatorade, and whatever was left of the wine in my system. :) lol. Needless to say after this run I went straight to the beer line. :) I eventually headed to the chili line too. :)
I got to see Elizabeth the 18 pounder yesterday. Some of you may remember her from "The Journey" last year. She ran with us on the snow melt on Tuesdays. Her hair is different now. super cute. :) Also the tall girl new to our group name is Amy I think. She was wearing pony tails. I never saw her before without just a hat covering all her hair before. Nice to put a name with the face. Other than that there was 4 fast people in a group together. Bob, lil Cathy, Kristen, and Sara. I think they said the run was kind of challenging too. I don't know why. One of them days??? Who knows?? At least we got us some vitamin D, because the sun was out shining. It was a great day, and a great way to get a long run in. WOOOOOOOO!!!
That is it for today!!!! :)
