Get out of car.
Turn on Garmin.
Wait for satellites to locate.
Stare at wrist like an idiot and wait.
Wait some more.
Satellites located and I'm off-----
00:01 ouch ouch ouch ouch
00:15 OHMIGOSH it's ONLY been 15 minutes? Ugh...
00:27 so I'm supposed to run for 2 hours, but a 30 minute run is still good. Right?
00:42 OK, I'm not looking at my watch again for at least another 30 minutes
00:44 DAMMIT!!!! Only 2 minutes have passed.
00:58 an hour run is perfectly acceptable for a weeknight, right??? Running is stupid!!
00:59 ouch ouch ouch ouch
1:01 Yes! Over the halfway point. I think I can do this.
1:10 OK, things are loosening up. I'm feeling much better.
1:20 ALL RIGHTY- I'm getting in the groove now. Time to turn this up and go for a run!
1:53 Holy moly- I'm almost done
1:58 Do I have to stop already???? :(
My engine is like a 1965 Mustang in the dead of a frigid Alaskan winter. It takes FOREVER for me to warm up, but once I get there I can go all day. It's that first hour+ that makes me want to scream, but then the time begins to fly by and I lose myself.
Just wondering if I'm the only one...
Palo Duro 50K is just 5 days away. I'm SUPER stoked! It will be my first PD run and my first 50K. I'm not hoping for anything spectacular. I'm a turtle on the trails. I average between 14-16 min/miles. I am hoping for sub 8 hours, but am planning on being out there 9. I just want to soak up as much of the run as I can. My friend Sarah is coming with me. Road trip, running, camping, friends, trails, and America's 2nd largest canyon. Is there anything about this trip that doesn't sound amazing???
Run wild, friends!
