Not a fancy way to start the year, but an enjoyable one. My legs felt tired and heavy all morning but Sutton informed me of a group run and I eventually relented to join them. Glad I did as it made 8 feel easy and I wish we all would have done a long run instead.
The only downside, I found out one of the guys that I beat at the Loop the Lake 8k in April went on to run 2:31 at CIM. Damn injury.
