A pax of 1 posted in VA Beach for the Shamrock half marathon. Conditions at the start were 43, pouring rain, and wind gusts up to 40 mph.
Run 1 mile, repeato x 13.1
YHC was rightfully called out for missing do Dogpile yesterday. Little did YHC know what a mistake that was. When YHC went to bed last night the weather report was cloudy but no rain between 7-10, right on the race window. YHC went to beat dreaming of a PR and good race conditions.
When YHC awoke and saw the rain pouring down he only had one thought- this is Corporate ‘s doing! From the start through mile 7 it poured while the wind gusted strongly. That was a lot of time for YHC to consider how Swirly could dial up a storm from over a 100 miles away…
YHC gave up on his anticipated time and living up to his name ran with his M per her request. Luckily at mile 9 YHC was released to turn it loose and run the last 4 miles in hard. The only benefit of the race was 13 miles toward the March running challenge and a good suckfest of a run like this is ideal BRR practice, Aye!
