I hate to dwell on the tat issue but it seriously cramped my style today. I had to wear booty shorts rolled down 3x at the waist so I didn't kill the tat. It was 27 degrees!
|okay not this short but you get it!|
Those who saw me are hereby sworn to secrecy! My tat is still swollen and sore. Or that's my excuse for the fat ass! When I ran I could feel the right side of my ass shake. DISLIKE!
But 14 miles and 1100 feet of elevation later I am happy to report I am, okay. For those not familiar with Umstead Park. This is a good picture of a wimpy hill in the park:

The Turkey Creek portion of Umstead is about a 5 mile loop of this type of elevation. It's rolling except for the 5 hills that are so steep you could lean against them. It was so cold early on I really couldn't feel my quads to dig into the hills. I guess this outfit didn't cut it.
I'll never learn! But I did see my Umstead bff Joey Anderson so I forgot about my misery for a few seconds.
Overall, a great run. Here's my garmin link. 14.11 miles in 1:41 at a 7:12 pace.
As for the tat. This is day 2. I think I'm entering the crusty stage though..not so pretty...
Well peace out dudes
