Another 22 (with chocolate)

Similar to our Same temperature same mileage run, we wanted to run 22 miles and I wanted to get the big climb up to Pittock in. Sally came with us for the first 10 miles, which had that as well as the uphill on Wildwood from Aspen to 53rd Ave. And she kept us a bit speedier than usual.

My goal was to run all uphills, and I did it-- even up Firelane 4. Well, except for a bathroom break on Koenig. Still, I could feel it. I was tired.

At some point on Wildwood after FL4, I realized that some of my tiredness was actually a visual migraine. I get them rarely, a few times a year, but I've never had one while running. There wasn't much to do but continue, since our route at that point was more or less directly back to the car. We stopped at Firelane 1 and ate some chocolate, which seemed to help. Before we got to our final climb up Birch, I was completely fine and ready to push it uphill.

We were fortunate to have a gorgeous morning and enjoy a challenging run.
