I am not getting any faster.
Actually, I spent this year with my right ankle fractured and in a boot and then after healing up and getting fit in the summer I ended up with a serious calf injury.
I genuinely expected to fail this year.
I had a plan for the first third of the run and ended up exceeding plans the first dozen miles or so. The next 9 miles sucked, but the sun and dry pavement was a saving grace. The last 5 miles were basically a trot in, so I was pretty pleased with finishing #17.
17 years and counting, almost up to The Undertaker's streak.
