2017-03-15 - Northeast Austin Track Trek

~10.1 miles @ ~11.6 min/mi

"Curse you!" Midway through today's run I meet Jennifer, visiting Austin from Baltimore. She admits that she recently set a personal best in the marathon there that is at least 10 minutes faster than my PB. Arggggh! She is studying her map to figure out the way back to her start. I help her get oriented, then try to keep up for a few blocks before abandoning the chase. She's just too fast!

Morning dawns cool. I run a lap (1:47) at LBJ High School, another at my junior high on the tiny track there, and one more (1:44) at my alma mater, Reagan High School. For some reason I feel a bit tired — maybe I need to up my mileage? (but see 2017-03-11 - Crazy Desert Trail Race

After the run, for the first time I try a salad with kale. When will the superpowers appear?
