I ran 37km in the dark, wearing a shirt and shorts that were both too small and a water bottle that worked 50% of the time. Oh, did I also mention I think my shoes were half a size to small. Ugh! All this cost me $300.00, I could’ve had a nice dinner out and a movie with my wife for half the price.
Yeah really, that’s what I did but I didn’t do it alone.. Oh no, my buddy Gabe was to blame for this crazy idea. Ok, but I’ll share the crazy part because I went along for the ride..LOL
After we closed down sports check (I’ll never go to that store again for running stuff. It sucked) we got changed and started on the run at 9:05 PM on Friday, August 21, 2015!
Since Gabe is a much slower and irregular runner than I, we decided on his pace of 6:50km. My long run pace is normally 5:35km so it was going to be hard to stick around with him the whole time but this was not race. Just a cool thing to do with friend on a Friday night. The longest I had ever run today was 29Km with a pace of 5:36km
Here is a mashup of the adventure…
