It started out a bit cold, so as usual, I overdressed, ohh.. and I forgot to grab my water.
As Ted and I where at about mile 6, a red fox was in the road, staring at us, as we running towards it. A car came up from behind us, and scared it in to the woods. We got close to it, as it was lying in the woods, I got my camera out, and it took off before I could snap a picture. It was really cool looking. We turned around at about the 8 mile mark, but before we did, we followed a boardwalk, to a little dock that overlooked the bay.
When we got back to our jacket drop off, I hit the men's room, and got some much needed water. I needed that, since I forgot my water back at the car.
There was some great scenery, and as we got back on the boardwalk, it's was awesome to be running next to the beach again.
It was a great run. I felt like I was an anchor on Ted. The man is a machine! He set a nice pace. We averaged 9:13 min miles. Let me tell ya, it was a tough keeping that pace, considering I haven't run miles like that since Philly, and running 7 miles on the trails Saturday didn't help!
It was great to run with Ted, and I look forward to running with him again.
It looks like Joyrun is well on her way to have a great NJ Marathon experience, both her and Turtle did awesome.
Fyi.. I owe Turtle & Joyrun writing credits for the title.
