"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

15 miles / undiluted minority/crestview/church/rainbow/whitesides/mortuary/emerald park/wasatch. 9:21 avg. my goal marathon pace is ~8:00 per mile, and currently 15 miles  is my long run so i'm okay with my pace for this run. i could tell from the start that i wasn't feeling super so that makes me super okay with a 9:21 avg. my only water was at emeradl park (mile 12ish). my last two miles were the fastest, both @ 8:53.
