It was 47 degrees on the top of Buckskin this morning....sweet. I picked up Barry and Seth and we took off down the marathon course. We started fairly slow, this was going to be Seth's longest run ever. Around mile 9 I started pulling away from them, not meaning too but I felt really comfortable running a 7-7:10 pace. I would work my way back to them every 2 miles and we took a short break just after mile 13.
Well, after that break I got a HUGE 2nd wind and just took off coming out of Inkom. I was running very smoothly and turned around after 16 and had to go back quite a ways to meet with the other 2. Then Barry said he wanted to run 2 MP miles from 16-18. I think he thought he would smoke me because he had run the last 5-6 miles a lot slower than me. We started off and I slowly pulled away from him and did the 2 miles in 13 minutes. We finished the last couple nice and easy. I felt like I could have easily run the whole 26 today and felt very strong. Total 20.05 miles.
