I didn’t think about how the run fit into my Ironman training plan. I didn’t think about the pace I kept. I described the feeling of warm sun on my shoulders, strength in my legs, 7 deer quietly feeding on the side of the trail, the amazing blue of Crystal Springs set a against a sea of green trees hugged gently by a thin blanket of clouds under a clear blue sky. I though about how that run made me feel so alive, in that moment.
