We're having a Ragnar team meeting today. Yesterday I texted the group to say - see you all tomorrow! Then we started texting about our group run this morning. It seemed that we would have myself, Mike, Glen, and Bryan to run Usery. But I got a text from Glen this morning saying he wouldn't be able to come. On the way to Usery, just north of Power and McDowell, we saw 6 javelina crossing the street. This is just on the outskirts of town, but it's still in town.
It was darker out this week than last week due to overcast skies. I tried to get a headstart, but Bryan started right behind me and passed me right after the stop sign. Mike finally caught me at near the 1 mile mark. I felt like I was running faster than last week, but I was actually running slower. It was about 0.6 miles before the top that I saw Bryan coming back down. That means he had already put 1.2 miles between us! I saw Mike coming back down at about 0.2 miles.
There were quite a few cyclists out this morning in the dark, but no runners. With about 1.2 miles to go I saw Bryan coming back up. So now he was 2.4 miles ahead of me!!! He turned around behind me and caught back up to me. He said there were some horses down at the bottom. My legs were feeling sore, but not too bad. I finally got to the bottom and snapped a picture of the four horses. But to see them, you'll have to visit my Strava account. Have a great day everyone!
