sounds weird, right?
Well… anytime we see a plane or hot air balloon on our runs we know that my Grandma and Brad are watching over us from heaven. 🙂
I averaged an 8:44 min pace for the run.
which is pretty amazing for me. My long runs have been feeling a lil blah lately.
so from now on… I want to run all my longs in St George. 😉
I realized a few things about the St George course.
1. that bitch is DOWNHILL. Last year I complained about all the hills.
but hot damn. All the downhill is KILLER.
I’m still sore.
2. I really like not having to run Veyo.
3. It really is a pretty course.
4. It’s DOWN hill.
5. I realized that there are houses and churches all along the course.
seriously… never noticed them before.
I really thought the only town was Veyo.
I suppose while I’m racing I just get ‘in the zone’ and only focus on the road ahead.
6. I think I like running “for fun” than “racing”.
I hope this changes by Ogden. I still want my sub 4:00.
Anyone ever go back to a race course to “redeem” themselves?
As much as I enjoyed my last St George marathon, it was nice to be able to run the last part of that at a speedy pace. Proved to myself that I am capable of running sub 9min miles.
Anyone planning on running St George this year?
As of right now… I’m not. I think my Momma might be signing up through the runners series. If she runs it, I’ll be the best cheerleader she’s EVER had. 😉
