I ran the Lululemon Ghost Race again this year, and did it twice (sort of) in one morning, due to my inattention!
On my first run, I asked my watch to measure a 3.9 mile run. When I finished, I was indignant that I hadn’t earned the badge or even qualified for the segment... which, I learned, is actually 4.9 miles. I’d turned around too soon.
I decided to run it again, since I had time before work... and did it much faster pace than my shorter run. Only 2sec/mile slower than last year!
Until I saw this photo I thought speed dating was a terrible idea.
Race Report: 2018 Granville Island Turkey Trot 10KM
A recap of my return to the scene of my 10KM PR race, the Granville Island Turkey Trot. This year I didn't set any PRs, but I did have fun, and pie.
I guess if you’re going to build a giant tank of crude oil and then use it to move shitty poison sludge around some of the most pristine unspoiled coastlines in the world, you gotta lean on a fun name for some positive branding. https://mastodon.xyz/media/NmoIHkW3rQzH7SfEycQ https://mastodon.xyz/media/DewA70nDwjzaaFuKyjQ https://mastodon.xyz/media/mwG50PM1uxMNcf3Vc5o

Today's race was a weird one for me. When I ran it last year, I unexpectedly set my fastest 10km pace ever, 7:20/mile. I started HRT a month later. This year I was nearly 6 minutes slower. I lost a mile per minute off my pace. I wasn't hitting it as hard as I could, but it felt like a huge gulf. Reminding myself that my pace today is right in line with my current fitness, I had more fun today than last year, and I've now run 900 miles in 2018, on pace for 1,030 for the year.
