Cougar 10 trail run | bike commute

I connected with Bryan Estes for a Cougar 10 this morning and it was great.

It was threatening rain all morning but never did and the trail conditions were perfect. Super muggy but perfect. We started very leisurely and then as we passed 20-Minute Tree Bryan turns to me and says, "Ready to PR this section?"

Yep. Nope.

That fantasy lasted for about 100' at which point Bryan started to pull away from me. Within about 300' he was out of sight! Good grief.

I had to throttle it back almost down to our previous pace but ran it in. Turns out Bryan did get his PR. Nice.
Home, shower, ride to work. The bike commute really is the perfect way to spin out a run.
On account of the conference I had been attending the last couple of days I got home pretty late and didn't get much sleep but for this one day I survived.

I rode home in the rain, first time doing that in ages. Not so bad when it's warm out.
