The past couple days I have been nursing a cold so my aspirations of really pushing this run like I wanted to had waned. My goal today was just to run on a sunny day with friends and do what I could. The first couple miles I was able to keep up a pace around 8 m/m but after that i got winded and lots of negative thoughts began to filter in. Pace slowed down quite a bit while I watched isis pull away doing a smoking pace!

Warm down:

hung out and chatted with patty and joanne post race. Joanne ended up getting 2nd in ag!!!!! woop!!!! so that was cool.

What limited your ability to perform faster:

simple fall cold.

Nice run Glen!

Too bad about the cold. There is an awful lot of stuff going around and half of the BTers I know-myself included- have been battling one nasty bug or another.

Good that you got out there and made the best of it.
