Those eight miles could have gone a lot better if I would have fueled better - I was out of energy 2 miles in.  But I was pleasantly surprised with how well I did and how little I hurt the next day. 

With a month until Odgen, I know I'll be able to get the mileage in that I need to be ready for race day.  This probably won't be my fastest 1/2 (which is a bummer, since the course is all downhill), but I'll just try to think of it as a training run for the other races I plan to run this summer.  The first one of the season is always the hardest for me.

But who knows - maybe I'll run faster, knowing that this is waiting for me at the end:
