7.5 miles. Hood Route to Legacy Trail and back. 5:30 am start. 59:45. 7:58 pace. 72 Deg. 78% Hum. 64 D.P. I ran through a spider web @ mile 5 that almost threw me backwards. Heinous.
So, one of the "cool kids" from Sarasota ran the Comrades Marathon in Africa last weekend. It is @ 56 miles of hilly madness. Sure, it is net downhill, but so was Boston, and that was completely misleading. They have bouncers that stop folks from crossing the finish line, if they miss the cut off. Anyhow, the medal is the size of a quarter. I think the medal size should directly correspond to the level of difficulty of the race. My local flat 5k should have a quarter-sized medal. The Comrades Marathon should have a frisbee-sized medal, that annoys everyone who sees it, and forces them to refer to you as "Flavor Flav." Just my opinion.
5.2 Miles. Ringling Bridge. 5:40 pm start. 39:19. 7:34 pace. 84 deg. 58% hum. 68 d.p.
I just realized I posted this on Tuesday, instead of Wednesday. Oops.
