Showed up at Foothill for my Sunday morning run with Dimitri. The plan was for him to 8 laps on the track while I jumped in for six of them. The trouble was that some organization had taken over the stadium so we were out of luck. Instead we ran up Moody Road to the top ( just before the twisters begin ) and came back at AT pace. I ran an inglorious 15:10 ( 7:02-8:10 ). The reason for the faster first mile is because the course drops steeply for the first 800 and then begins to flatten and roll out while still do continuing to gradually go downhill.
I am really slow. That's the takeaway.
But it was fun anyway.
