2010-06-17 - Parking Lot Laps

~4.5 miles @ ~9 min/mi

I look at myself in the mirror—gold-and-blue DC Road Runners singlet, orange-and-blue MCRRC shorts, black HAT Run hat—and decide to share the visual pain with incoming employees this morning. So garish three laps in the mercifully cool breeze follow, carrying a bottle of ice water around the parking lot perimeter. Approximately 1.5 miles each, times 14:28 + 12:52 + 11:59 (pace ~9.6 + ~8.6 + ~8.0 min/mi), and the old ticker is doing 165 or so at the end. Whew!
