UNCC Spectating

AM: 58 mins. (8 miles)

I had a great time on this relaxed run from Boyce with Jordan and Jenna. The weather has taken a turn for the better around here and it's a pleasure to be outside enjoying it. My legs felt greatly improved from yesterday as well, which always makes the time pass more quickly.

Speaking of quickly, some speedy times were recorded by Queens lady tracksters at the UNCC 49er Classic tonight. I watched as Maraya hit the provisional mark in the 1500 (4:37), Patricia rocked her first race as a Royal (17:53 for 5k), Jess FINALLY and after many hard-fought attempts broke 18 in the 5k (17:59) and Holly cruised to a PR and victory in the slow heat (18:22). The air was cold for us spectators but the vibes were good and it was a beautiful night to be outside. I will return to the meet tomorrow after the Shamrock 4 Miler, as it appears I will be suiting up and quite literally taking one for the team after all. Look for an 800 in the 2:40-2:45 range from these old legs.
