My virtually run 1 mile 9-6-08…
Today dawned very ugly. Low 70’s, dense fog and high humidity. Hurricane Hanna is on her way but had not yet struck at 7AM. I realized that today is Sept 6th and i needed to complete the Virtual 1 miler. After reading other blogs and reports on the mile i decided to do a 1 mile warm up and then just go for it. I thought i would be able to then do a 1 mile cool down but i simply couldn’t. It was as if the light switch in my brain turned itself off and my legs followed suit. Plus, i was sweating profusely and i saw up ahead a cute guy that i certainly couldn’t let see the sweat pouring. I reached in quickly to my underware and that too was soaked. I swear, if i was a man i would run sans shirt. Sans everything really. Hey, i like the word sans. I did not, however run sans ipod. After doing the mile i came to realize i am in no way ready for real speed work. I have a lot of work ahead of me. I am a little worried about my upcoming 10K race on September 20th. I suppose i could just do it without any expectations and hopefully i will be pleasantly surprised…hopefully….
Mile 1 – 10.40
Mile 2 – 9.24
I’m a freakin running machine!! I dare anybody to run with me!!!
I must thank Reid.
He made this virtual 1 miler happen. You rock dude!!! I also must thank Paash. Without her i may have flaked at this 1 mile. Without Paash on my left arm, i would have felt naked and vulnerable. Thanks Paash.
