am: 1 mile jog with Sumo, then 17 mile loop in 1 hr 55.
This is my 4th weekend in a row doing this run. I tried to run this one faster- no run the day before, wore lighter-weight racing shoes, carried about 24 oz of Gatorade, and took a 5 Hour Energy. I am very pleased- just under 58 min at the turnaround. Napa Valley Marthon in 4 weeks!
