Austin Marathon last 6 miles Long Run

Today I ran with Terry and Vinkat. We headed from Rogue Equipment north and up the last 6 miles of the Austin Marathon, then we turned around and ran south and down – straight out and back route. We were running 9:00/mile and we completed it in 1:47:22 or 8:55/mile. Sweet. Although at the end I was pushing real hard to finish ahead of everyone else, most of the time I felt good. I was actually running and talking. Again I feel that the weight loss has been a critical component of my physical and mental health. Who would have known it. There is something about the purity of running that got to me today. Just me, my legs and the road – nothing but that. The smooth flow of movement as we headed down Congress as a pack stays with me afterwards now.
