…Until Hood to Coast. And not only that….
It was my FASTEST run yet!
I beat my PR!
But let’s back up a bit. I realized I packed all my running hats once I got to work today, so during my lunch time run I wore my new Bondi band.
I definitely could have used my hat for today’s lunchtime run. It was 70 degrees, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky.
I don’t even know if my feet touched the pavement, that’s how fast I felt.
What was fueling me? I had Hood to Coast Anticipation pumping through my veins today. That’s all I can think to explain it. I visualized myself crossing the finish line in Seaside sweaty, exhausted, sore, stinky and happy. 🙂
I even noticed that a guy started using me as his pacer! What?! I was so surprised but he stayed right on my tail the rest of my run. Am I fast runner? Usually not! But today I was!
I crossed the Hawthorne Bridge at I think the 18 minute mark? It’s hard to remember but usually I cross the bridge between 21-24 minutes. When I got to the other side, I saw that there were a bunch of sprinklers on.
Back at the office, I did my usual and headed back to work. I was so excited about my run time!
