I didn't have much to write, so I thought I'd just upload some pics. I'm pretty exchausted b/c my 22 miler was unsuccessful. :(
I got to mile 14 and knew that I was going to struggle. I pushed on to 18.5 and just had to walk the last 2. I bid adieu to my running buddy while she powered through. All was not lost, though. I learned a valuable lesson: maintain pace. The first 6 miles we ran at about 9:30 minute pace and I prefer to run between 10 and 10:30 minute pace with water stops about every mile or every other mile. Not only were we speed demoning through, but we didn't make as many water stops as normal. Oh well. Lesson learned. But the ice bath when I got home made it not hurt as much as it could.
Here is Guapo. I know I talk about him a whole lot, but seldom is he caught in a photo. So here he is.
With my beloved at the Bourdain dinner. It was date night for us and we got out of the house to have a 5 course meal date and I sipped on the wine from Don's wine pairing. I also got some beautiful flowers for our date!
Michael and Jeev. They came over to cheer on their teams for the Red River Rivalry.
