Hood to Coast - the details you are waiting for...

You can find a more detailed description of the legs I ran on my personal blog. But, I thought you would be the only crowd who would truly appreciate the details I am eager to share: my splits!

leg 6: 7.4 miles - 1 hour 51 seconds - 8:09 minute/mile
leg 18: 4.1 miles - 34 minutes 35 seconds - 8:24 minute/mile
leg 30: 5.3 miles - 42 minutes 49 seconds - 8:06 minute/mile

I am so thrilled with this because last year my splits looked something like this:

first run - 7:40 minute/mile
second run - 8:40 minute/mile
third run - 9:40 minute/mile

What a difference! I have really surprised myself. It makes me wonder what goals I could really accomplish if I wasn't so scared of failing... and pain! It makes me want to train harder!

P.S. I have some photos, but they are on my hubby's camera which he has to upload at work. There is an especially choice picture of male runner in a silver metallic thong: his running outfit! Can you just imagine the chaffing??

I already responded on your "other" blog. I am so tempted to call you right now. But, I will resist. :-) You are an amazing runner, and every time I remember how fast you are, I think of how lucky I am that you are my training partner. I promise after St. George I will be up for our crazy runs like running straight up Sunset Hill over and over and over... I miss you! Can't wait to see the thong guy! I also can't wait to hear more details.

Chelle, Cherl, are you in for a Hood to Coast team next year? Guess what our team name would be?! Ha ha!

Hmmm...silver thong. Doesn't exactly sound like a great fashion or running choice.

And as much as I adore you, I'm sort of glad you aren't my running partner. At least not yet...you would leave me in the dust in seconds flat!! ;)

I'm glad you had such a good experience!
