Happy Valentine's Day!
I am sitting here drinking wine, nibbling some brie cheese, and playing around online while Zach creates some kind of delicious chocolate dessert... I am forbidden from entering the kitchen so I don't know what he's working on exactly. All I know is I'm going to devour it immediately after dinner. Or, you know, before. Whichever.
Zach and I had an amazing run in Forest Park today. We were just talking about it and he called me Speedy Gonzales, and I thought he said Sweetie Gonzales, hence the title. Sorry if that is offensive? No I'm not, lighten up. Dude is fast.
And so am I.
11.0 miles/1:26:28/7:51 average pace
Here's the splits. Keep in mind the main trail in FP climbs for about a mile or two, then more or less evens out. But it's a little rolly the whole way. We stopped a few times between miles 4-6 or so to rest, enjoy the view, and make out (kidding). I didn't use my GPS since I can't keep a signal up there and the trail is marked accurately.
4- 8:08 (average, missed the 4th mile marker)
5- 8:08 (average)
6- 8:00 (turned around at 5 1/2)
That last mile is a screaming downhill, but still. I'm sure that is the fastest I've ever run a single mile, and it was after running 10 hilly miles.
Happy Valentine's Day, my loves!!
