Workout: Ran 13.26 miles in 1 hour, 56 minutes, 38 seconds; average pace, 8:47.
Epic long run. Epic. Like a pair of Manolo Blahnik Mary Janes.
My mind was in it. Actually, it wasn't - my mind wasn't anywhere, which was perfect. I didn't fret about pace or distance. I didn't even freak out when we took a break for Denali to meet two other huskies. I had set my mind on getting in the distance and nothing else mattered.
And I was all the better for it. Being relaxed allowed the miles to just tick away; it was as if I didn't even notice going from 7 to 9 to 11 to 13 to finished. Stretching by the car, I even told Mark that this run was the best I've had - including shorter weekday runs - in a long while.
The Wild Outrageous Oubache Fifteen ... BRING IT.
