These pictures are from last Saturday when I took my daughter running. I'm shaving the beard off today. Although it makes me look rather distinguished and quite handsome, it's pokey.
This morning I went running with three other Ragnar teammates of mine, two of which are fellow bloggers - James W and Camille. It was a nice run. We started out real easy for the first 4 miles, then we picked it up. I ran with James most of the time. This was the first time I met James. I've talked to him before on the blog, and I have a picture of us standing next to each other at a race from before I knew him, but it was nice to finally "really" meet him. He's a cool guy and has a lot of knowledge about running. Camille and Jared were right behind us most of the way. They would catch up to us at the stop lights. Then with about a mile and a half to go, we picked it up pretty good. With half a mile to go James was about 10 feet ahead of me. That's out of my audio range. He said something that I imagine was, "Is it okay if I leave you in the dust now?" I yelled, "Yeah!" He finished pretty strong. I didn't finish as strong as I would've liked. I tend to do that when I run with other people. Below are my splits.
Time: 54:57 (avg. pace 8:41)
Splits: 9:19, 9:12, 9:18, 8:42, 8:16, 7:40, 2:30 (7:43)
I started my Garmin about a tenth of a mile after we started running. According to James we did 6.42. Mine said 6.32.
