The huge group ran 6 miles and then Amanda and I added on one more 2 mile loop for the even 8 :) We even had negative splits:
Mile 1 11:03
Mile 2 10:51
Mile 3 11:11
Mile 4 10:49
Mile 5 10:25
Mile 6 10:06
Mile 7 9:57
Mile 8 10:02
I'm heading out of town to chaperone the 7th grade trip to DC this weekend and will miss out on this week's runs, but I'll get back on track when I get back. I'm not too worried; there's plenty of time before the Grand Rapids full and I'll be walking a million miles each day :)
I'll be running the Dexter Ann Arbor half on June 3rd and then will focus 100% on marathon training. I ran my first full last October in Detroit and my goal was just to finish. I did, in 5:28:22, and felt great. This time around, I want to train harder to break the 5 hour mark. That's kinda ambitious, but why not??
Hope you all have a great week!
