Wonderful weather for my last run of the last official day of winter.

90 in a row! This has been pretty awesome to do. I’ll post a bit of a summary in a bit, but for now, back to todays run.

I went out looking for a ‘long run’, and wasn’t disappointed. I got a strava ‘PR’ for 30k, which isn’t surprising considering how often I do them. On the other hand, the last time I did one was a couple years ago, and I was considerably lighter, so this is better in at least two dimensions.

I found the sidewalks alternating between clear with a bit of gravel, and terrible with slush, ponds and melting dog-droppings. I managed to keep a pretty good pace despite those challenges, logging an average of 6:21 for three and a half hours.

Pretty happy with that, but even happier looking back to see how much I have done to bring me to this state of readiness.

I’ll get to that summary soon, for now, enjoy this run, with no photos (no time!)

Training Tip: Athlete I follow – Judi Mah

Judi was the reason I started running. She has been a steady encouragement, both by cheering me on, and by sharing a little of her own achievements with me. You might not be lucky enough to follow her like I do, but at least you can have a glimpse.

I love you, Judi. Thanks for all your help with this.
