Four on the Fourth 2008

PR!! 39:03

That's 59 seconds off my previous PR in 2006. Even more exciting, it's an average pace that begins with a single digit number. Yee-hah!

Now my only hope is that I didn't use up all my reserves, because I think I need them for Rattlesnake Lake on Sunday. Weather forecast is for a low around 50 and high around 68, partly cloudy, possible morning showers. That will work for me, I'm excited! So excited I went and signed up for another: Light at the End of the Tunnel in mid-August. Start in Hyak, run through the old two mile RR tunnel, and cruise on down to North Bend. A slight downhill the whole way, wide gravel trail. Same trail I'm running this weekend and ran for the Mt Si 50K. Same deal as this weekend - too hot and I'm out. For now though, we'll focus on Rattlesnake on Sunday, then in two weeks our 168 mile relay. I'll be running 6 legs, 29 miles total. However, we are leaving ourselves flexibility in switching legs around as needed, so though I'll do six legs for sure, my total mileage could change.

That's it, no pictures from today because we forgot the camera. Eric volunteered at the finish line and awards ceremony, and me? Well, you can just call me Speedster!
