I let myself have today as a post-HTC pity party hangover day – tomorrow I swear I’ll return to life as a normal human. With real thoughts, food, and proper hygiene.
And maybe I’ll unpack.
Browsing photo albums, re-reading timelines, and stalking garmin data have done nothing but enable the post-partum feelings. Such an incredible weekend, from the first minute on Seattle turf to the final (airport-sprinting) second. Nuun played perfect host and exceeded all expectations by like a 400%.
(Currently re-packing all belongings and (uninivitedly) relocating to HQ.)
All I know is I’m glad my iPhone spent as much time in camera mode as it did. Many memories to cry over next time I’m feeling sad with non-relay, non-PNW, non-awesome-new-friends boring ol’ regular running.
So, pretty much every minute of every day.

Until the recaps are ready, or rather I come out of denial that HTC weekend is actually over, let’s talk quickly about last week’s training…

CIM Training – Week #2
Su – 30 min bike, abs – lovely SoCal recovery day

W – off – busy flying to Seattle and kicking off NuunHTC
Th – 5 mi at Green Lake with Nuun crew and the Oiselles – progression/almost tempo/faster than easy pace
F – HTC leg #5 – 6.11 mi, second half steady climb (430’ gain)
Sa – HTC leg #17 – 8.75 mi, fast with surprise climb (200’) at end, 3am (course was detoured last minute)
HTC leg #29 – 6.12 mi, first half climbing (588’) and a fun fast finish down

Back to normal business.
