Sanitas X 2 16:53/ 15:57
I had to go in for groceries this morning and decided I would run Sanitas for the first time ever. I parked below the hospital and ran up to the bathrooms, then back down and headed up for a recon of the trail. I felt like crap but my watch still read 19:53 at the pole which included the run up to and back down from the bathrooms (~3:00). Descended the back side which sucked completely but I bumped in to Matt Reed who was coming down the nice part of the trail, always good to see Matty. Lap 2... my legs ached and my stomach was cramping from eating before a run which I never do, I was out for a jog after-all. From the bridge to the pole in 15:57 but I forgot to hit stop on my watch. I felt far from even OK which made it a good effort but I dragged ass the whole way. I'll be back for this again when I feel rested.
