|Yeah, it is last year's pic|
But this year's weren't funny!
Today is national running day. Since this is neither a “real” holiday nor a holiday that I get off of work, I’m going to henceforth decree “national running day” to mean “worldwide running day” to be a bit more all-inclusive. I will celebrate my worldwide decree Canadian style (ehh?) by shotgunning a Molson and then shotgunning a bottle of real Maple Syrup in rapid succession. Uppers and downers, it’d be like a carb filled upper / downer combo. (In case you aren’t as hip as me, shotgunning definition here ......now reread it. Hilarious right?)
To celebrate worldwide running day, I ran 15 miles. Which, of course means that I had planned to run 15 miles all along and called that my “celebration”. Just like when I randomly send my mom flowers one weekend and it just so happens to be mothers day. What a totally random coincidence! The 15 miles went pretty well, not good, not great. I ran the first half easy and the second half every other mile I ran at 15K pace, a total of 4 miles, at 6:15/mile. Overall I ended up at 7:08 pace which I’ll take all day long.
Of course, I don’t dedicate an entire paragraph about how fast I am to brag
Hey, it could happen, right? Afterall, that 7:08 pace that I ran this morning? 2 years ago my tempo pace was 7:15.
How far have YOU come in your running over the last few years?
