Awesome run! To think you once disliked morning running, and now you're up WAY before the sun ;) Are the MWMLRs winding down (distance)?

mwemlerrrrr. I would like to know two things: 1) what kind of kid is skateboarding at 4:30am? and 2) what place dis the fox come in? I hope you beat it...

Can you start calling me in the morning to get my lard butt out of bed? Lol. 4:29start time, I can't even remember the days where I was capable of doing that!

I love your race bib!!

You are an awesome morning runner. I still wish we lived closer together. You could drag me through long runs. I am sooo used to splitting mileage...ekkk for when I need to actually run it all together!

Great job!

shellyrm aka jogging stroller mama said...

Are your miles for the Virtual race and MWMLR backwards? No it's actually 8.25 miles not 18.25 miles...then did you run another 11.8 miles or is that a total mileage? Wait, look at who I am asking. you probably ran 19+ miles in the predawn hours while I was sleeping or getting s'ghetti ready for school.

Wow.
