Didnt have a plan for today I just wanted to finish and if I felt good try and run slightly hard. Picked up Steven at 5 am and drove over to the Ivins park and then hopped on the bus up to the start. Had a potty break and then waited for the start. No warmup or anything I just figured thats what the first few miles would be for. Ended up going out faster than I expected but my legs felt horrible for the first 11 or so miles. Ran with the first place woman until around 11 and Im glad she was around. Talking with her helped me forget ( a little) feeling crappy and she pulled me along. Looked down at my watch around 11 and saw that we where slowing a bit and she was struggling with that pace but I was starting to feel better. I picked it up the effort and was able to hold a decent pace for the rest of the run. Nice to see that the body will still respond when I ask it to despite being tired and out of shape. Glad I got in the race and had a good run.
