Anyway, my dad gets a gold star for the fact he ran the entire 21 with me! He is not training for a marathon and is mere weeks from his 60th birthday! No, I didn't force him to do this. He wanted this punishment under his own accord. In his own words: "I wanted to do it just because I can." Oy vey.
The run had me hit that zen like feel about 13 miles in. I just felt like I could run forever. It was wonderful considering the obscene humidity. My times? I was about 4 minutes faster on the way back. Not too shabby. Good sign for 6 weeks from now. Bring it on!
Oh and it should be mentioned this run was done after having a surprise birthday party for my dad the night before. I got about 5 hours of sleep and ran the first 10 miles on the night before's food.
Yes, we did get him good:-D
