You would think that 12 miles would have been easy. This morning, I joined up with Mark at 7 a.m. to do the deed. During the first mile, I glanced at my pace reading to see 8:19. I slowed up and Mark backed off too. The miles that followed from there felt sluggish. The splits were okay, but some of the miles were *well* over 9:00/mile.
After 10 miles were done, Mark left me. I popped my earphones on and started my music. Much better. I finished the 12 miles and headed off to get my reward – a Latte with NF milk.
Back at home, the activity was already starting. We had two extra teens in our house ready for me to take them to a skateboarding exhibition. Ugh…I need more coffee (or more running). I reminded them that we would not be leaving for 2.5 more hours! Then the phone rang; one more teenager would be joining the mommy-van on the trek to the event. It’s going to be a crazy day.
