      Nope. It's not the new shooz. It's the new Barb. She's wicked fast!

      Thanks Dana. The Barb that started running 6 years ago never dreamed of 7 minute miles...it's strange to have the confidence to just own them. Does that make sense? Anyway. I should stop being self deprecating...it's not an attractive quality. ;)

      6:22 is FLYING. fun? yeah, you gotta keep those shoes! what a match you all are, those are some major milestones and you've been through some harsh and celebratory realities. such a sweet reflection… time to build some new stories! (and not to take away from the moment, it's not the shoes, it's you and your true ability to run 7 minute miles)

      YAY!!! Glad that mood didn't linger. AWESOME work. Oh and btw - the other high point from yesterday is that you totally made many of our day with your angry unsuccessful posts trying to encourage me out of my own mood. Even if they weren't supposed to be funny. :D

      T - I think there's something mentally interesting about running for time - my brain says "meh it's only X minute(s), go for it!" Whereas with miles my brain says "it's only x miles left, hang on!!" y'know? anyway. always happy to make ya proud. :)
