race day, again!
felt good waking up, but heavy. didn’t weigh myself, was probably like 148 or something (retaining alot of water/food etc).
That milkshake was SO. DAMN. GOOD. especially after a 3 hour run. One of the best things about running for such a long time, is the sugar flood afterwards… everything tastes incredible.

felt really good in the first mile. actually tried reigning it back a bit. still hit 5:22/5:24 one of the two. tried holding back a bit in anticipation of the hill coming up @ 1.5 and I just got dropped. They went up pretty strong, and down very fast. I was basically toast at this point. lol.
Did this course a few months ago @ 18:05 official / 17:40ish watch. I crushed the hill that day. Only thing i’m annoyed with today is how sh*t I went up/down the hill
