Crushed my run today… not “super-crushed” race pace, but felt really, really good. Consistent power through the entire run, mind and body aligned. Focused. I missed the rain by about 30 minutes – it started to pour after I got back. I found a Mountain Hardware Ghost Whisperer anorak on the clearance rack at Next Adventure and picked it up. It weighs less than 2 oz !! and is wind and waterproof. I think it’ll be my go to shell for fall/winter runs. I started with it today but it’s still kind of warm outside (noticeably cooler in Forest Park) and ended up tying it around my waist. Zip zip.
I wasn’t able to make the last Portland Trail Series race b/c of a conflict. I ended up 18th overall (M) http://www.webscorer.com/seriesresult?seriesid=28592&gender=M
Had a breakthrough realization on a long running thing I’ve been working through for … almost 2 year. So that’s probably the most awesome thing of the week. Yeah. That’s good for one DLR balloon kick. or 10.
