Sometimes you just have to suck it up, cupcake
Um, so you guys totally rock! Thank you for inspiring me to peel myself off the couch and out to the trail. I was so not feeling that run, but like always I am happy I did it.
I was really happy I did when I figured out it’s my longest post injury run!!
I averaged a 9:43 pace per mile.
The last time I ran 9 miles was almost 2 years ago in the California Classic half marathon. I got injured 3 weeks later, but we won’t go there today.
I ran along the Bay Trail and around Google again. There are a ton of nice streets & trails to run on so I never get board. I really need to stop running by Google around lunch time because their 20 some odd cafeteria’s smell amazing. I thought about jacking an employee’s badge.
It might look cold, but I think it was in the mid 60’s a little humid.
This water fountain at Google saves me every time. I thought it deserved to be featured on SCB because I’m classy like that.
As well as this dead squirrel. Part of me wanted to tie a get well soon balloon around it’s tail, but I thought better of it.
This run was a tough one mentally, but around the half way point, I finally snapped out of it and finished feeling pretty good. I pushed it hard up the overpass and thought I was gonna yack when I got to the top so I stopped for a bit. I think I was just a little dehydrated and ready to be done.
I was so hot, sweaty and hungry when I got home, that gear had to come off asap. The aftermath…
And it turns out the coffee fairy doesn’t exist, so I had to go get it myself. <- total first world problems.
It was so worth it!
In completely random news, my sister met Jon Taffer from Bar Rescue in Vegas yesterday! Mike recently got me into that show and I think it’s so cool she got to meet him! She said he & his wife are really nice.
