I started to run home from work and wanted to see how far I could go.
1 mile - 8:03 - This first mile is always hard. I run right by some orange groves on Southern Ave. Breathing is hard with all the pollen or whatever it is.
2 mile - 8:16 - Crossed the US 60.
3 mile - 8:45 - At mile 3.3 started to feel like I wanted to puke up all the chili dogs and peanut brittle I had for lunch.
4 mile - 8:58 - Somewhere along here Ox saw me and honked at me. He probably made some people mad thinking he was honking at them. Did I mention that he was the one who brought in the peanut brittle?
5 mile - 9:09 - At mile 5.25 (right at the 202 overpass) Gabe saw me and pulled over. It was pretty cool for him to stop and see how I was doing.
6 mile - 9:08 - Here I left Higley and started running down the UPRR tracks.
7 mile - 9:11 - Ran passed the site I'm currently working on for RWCD.
8 mile - 9:22 - Right at exactly 8.0 I must've been doing pretty good. This is where the tortoise passed the hare. By that I mean I ran past a couple of cotton tail bunnies. I saw about a dozen of them over the next mile and a half.
9 mile - 9:44 - Got to Power Road and decided to call my wife to have her pick me up.
10 mile - 10:02 - Figured I would get at least another mile in before my wife arrived.
10.83 mile - 10:10 avg. - My wife finally got to me, but I kept going because I wanted to get an even 11 miles in. She thought I'd gone crazy when I didn't stop.
11.1 mile - 9:19 avg. - I overestimated how much I had to run to get my even 11.
Overall time was 1:41:47. Well, at this pace I would've beat my time for a half marathon if I'd gone two more miles. Live to fight again another day.
