After running barefoot on the track I felt like Tinker Bell floating up the Twilliger hills as I hoped upon my toes. 15 minutes up I feel a little taxed. Look down at my trusty Polar and I'm rockin a 180 HR. Hmmmm...my mind was elsewhere I don't recall pushing that hard. As I hit the half way point I start to suffer a bit. My arch nemesis B**** A** Achilies decided to scream some bloody murder. I tried to sweet talk it with some Trigger Point action when we got home but it wasn't feelin it. On I ran and just tuned out the heel pain, as I'm dealin with my own internal pain. With less than 3/4 of a mile to go I see a pack of runners winding down the path. I'm not sure what got ahold of me but at this point I felt like I had transformed into a wild animal. I was going to catch that pack. I leaned forward, chest puffed out like a proud peacock and kicked up my turnover, watch out B****es here I come. To my surprise I caught them (they were far ahead!) and flew past.......reached my car and spent the next 2-3 minutes hurled over on the verge of vomiting everywhere. I AM FREE!
