We’re hosting friends this weekend and were out almost all day and night yesterday, only stopping back by the house briefly before midnight. We had just finished biking about 20 miles. Kristen had mentioned that the biking should count as the run. Nope.

I made the most of the time we stopped back at the house by knocking out a quick mile. I wanted to be a good host so I ran it as quickly as possible, and finished in 8 minutes and 20 seconds. My fastest time in years.

Today some friends ran with me. I told them I was slow and ran at about a 10 minute pace but we ended up running the first mile in 9:10 and the second in 8:30 for an incredible -40s split.

I’m pumped to say the least. A sub 9 minute pace at 250+ lbs seems incredible. I’m wondering if a sub 8 is possible.

Total Miles: 52.31 in 24 days.

See how this whole thing got started here.
