Know what happens when you start a long run at 4am? You're done by 7...Very little sleep mixed with too much wine and 3:15am came SO QUICKLY. Texted Amy Z. to see if we were indeed doing this and her reply was, "HELL YEAH!" Ok, how can I say no to that?!

She had to be back by 6:45, so we ran almost an hour before meeting up with Brian A., Jeff F., Tanya W., Kris M., and Jeanne S.. Did a loop around Forest Park, then we all kind of did our own out and back thing to make up the mileage. Amy had to scoot home and finish up on the TM, while I ended up finding Jeff & Brian again. Brian needed 18, so he ran me home, then back into the park.

Plan called for steady 15, then last 3 push the pace without checking the Garmin. Struggled for the first 6-ish miles while I was warming up but then took a Gu Roctane which seemed to give me the boost I needed. We kept the pace really conversational and it was only on the last mile I had to shut it to breathe. :-D
9:34, 9:12, 9:03, 8:56, 9:02, 9:25, 9:18, 8:57, 8:37, 8:37, 8:47, 8:39, 8:31, 8:52, 8:14, 8:01, 7:49, 7:27

And that's it. From Saturday the 8th to Saturday the 15th, I put in 106 miles. Tomorrow? I.R.E.S.T.
