Another 20 for the books!

Ah yes, another 20 miler done. There is some victory that starts to creep in after mile 17. Running 20 miles is an accomplishment, I think.

Today I ran in Umstead State Park today. Probably my favorite running location.

Temp: mid 70's to mid 80's
Humidity: 88% in the beginning. It got much better though
Start Time: 6:30am
Total time: 2:27 Pace Avg: 7:21 Last mile 6:57.
awe yeah!

Here's how the run went in a nutshell:

20: # of miles
1385: Total feet of elevation 
1612:  # of calories burned
5: # of pounds lost in sweat.
30: # of ounces of water and G2 I drank
1: # of times I saw my running partner get water from the dog bowl fountain.
1: # of times I said "I feel high!!" after taking my first gel ever.
6: # of miles I felt high and ran oddly faster after the gel.
6: # of miles running partner seemed confused with new post gel pace.
3: # of random sub 7 miles.
5+: # of people that gave me a shout out on the trail and I still can't recall their names. Err!
1: # of times it felt completely appropriate to put lots of ice cubes in my sports bra.
2: # of failed bunny hops over a gate in umstead.
4: # of times I profusely apologized for going the wrong way at mile 15ish up a STEEP hill just to turn around. 
2: # of laps around the parking lot for garmin to click 20.
1: # of turkey sandwiches I brought Brian for doing 20 with me at 6:30am BEFORE he worked 8 hours. See graphic above. Rock on friend!
1: # of grinding rim scratches I heard while parking against the curb in the breakdown lane to deliver said sandwich.
