Lap 6. started this w 5min walking to make sure pizza was settled. it was. then realized the happy group chat was not motivating for me any more so ran mostly by myself. feeling good.

Lap 8. mostly solo i think. 3 girls started this lap, i finished first, 1 decided to drop. 8 laps was my original goal but since there was only 2 girls left, and i felt decent, decided to start a 9th.

Lap 9. 16 people started this one. David took off like a rocket, finished it in 35min!!! i didn't feel especially great so just slogged along. then w 1mi to go i realized the 2nd place girl was gaining on me so i ran "hard" for the last mile. and started to feel better!! but muscles a little sore, R groin/hammy and glutes so decided to call it. the other girl (Cheri) went out for a 10th lap looking strong so i have no regrets about 2nd place! finished in a gorgeous sunset. grateful for the strong, generous, and chilled-out running community i got to be a part of today.
