What a lovely day it's been! I woke up and took on the Big House Big Heart 10K for the second time, and nailed a 3.5 minute PR!
The loop is nice: you run through campus, downtown residential areas and finish on the 50 yard line at the Big House. The fall colors have really started to pop in Ann Arbor, too. So pretty.
Mile 2: 9:21
Mile 3: 9:10
During the second round, I tried to pick up the pace but was really starting to hurt. Running this fast is hard!
Mile 5: 8:55
Before I knew it, we were rounding the last corner to head into the Big House! The tunnel in is the absolute COOLEST part-- I get goosebumps every time!
Mile 6: 8:56
Mile 0.24: 8:05 pace
Then it's just a short sprint across the finish...
Post-run rice krispie treats occurred. And I attempted the Heisman trophy pose.
Once I made it back home, it was egg sandwich and apple cider time. Demolished in 0.005 seconds.
