Since I am always slower on my hilly trail I planned to run around the loop with a decent pace first, take a water stop and do it again easy pace. I thought if I was feeling great I would consider a third loop...
So my first go was a success 9:56, 10:07, 10:33, 11:04 and a half mile in 5:42, that was a good trail time for me and it helped me to relax for my second go round.
I drank the water bottle I stashed at the mouth of the trail and went again.
10:50, 11:16, 11:13, 11:49 and I ran out and up the road to my car which was .80 in 8:27 which made a perfect 15 k distance.
I was sweating like crazy and with the sun going down I actually felt chilled. I couldn't wait to take a shower! There was no way I could of would of went again. It's really strange after all these months of suffering through heat, humidity, and nauseous symptoms, to actually feel chilled.
