The weather couldn't be any more perfect this morning. At 7am it was 32 degrees and it continued to warm up all day. By the time we hit the second loop, it was incredibly sunny as well. With little to no slick spots and a great group, the miles just continued to click off. My right hammie has been revolting recently, so I needed to stop to stretch it twice today. I was also pleasantly surprised to see Marco-mate +Jeffry Archer at 5 miles running back to the start with Carrie....he looped back to say hi and reassure me that he had already done about 8.5 and was going to head back after chit-chatting a little bit. Then....he said "You Gonna Keep Running This Pace?"...Puzzled, I said "Yeah". Well, I guess he liked it because he ran another 5 with me at a 9 min/mile pace. Seriously - this dude does spin and swims 1,000 times a week + is doing Marcothon. The group has collectively decided - he is a cyborg after he completed his 13.1+ mileage this morning. Heck, I'm dead from my 10 miler. He does everything above + a half marathon. RIDICULOUS AND AMAZING.
The best part....we all went out for breakfast today! With a table with about 14-16 at it, we all enjoyed replenishing all the calories we burned - and then some :) The Denver skillet was mighty delish. I even got hassled for buying Mark's breakfast (long story!)
