10 Miler

5 AM alarm. Why o why do I insist on getting up this early on a Saturday? Does anyone else have debates with yourselves about this? This morning, ID kept arguing for more bed time. 20 minutes into the debate, EGO decides enough is enough and beats the crap out of ID. Super Ego just watches....... ID regains consciousness by the 3rd mile and is having a great time with the endorphins. Woo hoo!

At 5:45 AM, the run begins. This 10 miler is a new course mapped out yesterday with the help of gmap-pedometer that takes me to Cochran's Crossing shopping center. This gives me flashbacks from last year's Woodlands Fit group as we sometimes met at this place in front of Alamo Joe's restaurant before the long runs. How quickly a year goes by.

Run Summary:

Distance: 10.0167 miles
Time: 1:39:54
Pace: 9:58/mile
Shoes: Kayano XII (209.8 miles)

Yesterday, I followed a friend to Luke's Locker on West Gray. She had bought a pair of Asics Gel-Nimbus couple of weeks ago from Luke's and had been having all sorts of blister problems with it. This was her 3rd pair of Nimbus and was lost for answers as to why this pair gave her so much trouble. Luke's staff didn't have the right answer either but fit her into a new pair of Nike Vomero's. Luke's gave her a full refund for the Nimbus. LUKE'S LOCKER ROCKS!

Live Long and Prosper.
