well, it had been a while since i pinned a number on my shirt, so i am attempt to motivate myself, i ran the Mews 8K today. it was a tough run in 23 degree heat, our 3rd real summer day of the year here! yesterday, i spent most of the day in the sun at Topsail Beach, where i got a rather bad sun burn. it was not fun running with sunburn all over.
the run started slow and sluggish, and i even had to take a bathroom break at 4k!. then i finally got warmed up. after hitting 5k at 33.30, i managed to pick the pace up. i sprinted in the last 3 k in 16.20, to sneak in just under 50. it was fun to see some old colleagues from the running community that i hadn't spoken to since last year.
oh well, after running just 5.7k over the past 2 weeks, it's nice to be back!
