Today's SDTC run started at our ususal spot, at Hospitality Point, but we took a different route. We ran through Ocean Beach and Dog Beach to Sunset Cliffs (known as the Wahidohi Run ~ or Water, hippies, dogs and hills Run.) I loved this run because we ran right at the cliffs with the Pacific Ocean just right there. It was gorgeous. I wish I had a hat-cam or some sort of easy access camera, because it's one of those things that makes a person feel grateful for being alive and being able to enjoy the experience. It also makes me feel very grateful to reside here.
I also ran with the B group today. I was pretty much in the middle of the pack, but with a water stop after mile 4, and the onset of asthma right before mile 7, I slowed. I'm glad I ran with the B group, though. There was one guy I was able to pace with for the longest time, and he was running a comfortable pace in a sub 9 minute mile pace. Once the asthma kicked in I slowed down to a 10 minute mile pace for a short while, and that did throw off my overall time. It's OK, though. I think this was my fastest 8 mile run, ever.
Next weekend is the Super Run 10K. I'm looking forward to that! It's my first event for this year.
My nephew, Kyle, is producing his second play in Chicago this weekend: Expectations. My sister called this morning just gushing. She's so proud! I thought I'd pass along the gushing ~ he is my nephew and Godson, afterall... I obviously can't be there but I'm sure he did a wonderful job. He's also acting in the play as well.
