My wife is looking to build her mileage so that the Lighthouse Run and the Maui Half are a little easier for her to handle. In that vein she convinced me to forgo my 10 miler this week and do 12. We met Melissa at 5:30 am in the Panera parking lot and started our run. I was only able to squeak 8 miles in before meeting the group at 7 so I thought I’d be a little short but Melissa knew where to turn so that we would have just the right mileage for the day.
My body shut down at 9 miles – I just did not want to run any more but I slogged through it with a little walking and I was able to finish the 12 miles in a 9:45 pace. The weather for the day was cool (49) and windy (ENE 5mph)
