The rain-fest long run! Met up with Booth, Shane, and Jeff for a good run before the marathon. We decided to do the marathon course down to the Oaks with an extention around the Island loop. The weather looked to be looming, but we headed out - the rain started pretty good around mile 6-7 and only got worse. Heres the breakdown: 8:13, 7:54, 7:35, 7:45, 7:44, 7:26, 7:28, 7:35, 7:21, 8:25(water/GU), 7:44 (submerged my left foot on the middle fork bridge in a puddle - not good), 7:44, 8:08, 8:40 (almost called it a run at my mailbox - I blame Chad/Shane on my continuation), 8:35 - GU, 8:37 - Hill, 8:05, 9:12 (Gatorade at marina), 8:00, last .67 at 7:57 pace. Three layers of clothes soaked two shoes soaked - left foot started rubbing pretty good probably from the immersion, good run to have in the books... Total Ascent 1269 Descent 1970!
.50 on the Tm when I got home at 7:35 ish pace. I decided I better hit 20 and I better do it before I took off my soggy clothes and shoes... Good Stuff!
