Under construction

With 2299 feet of ascent and 2400 feet of decent, today's long run (15.6 miles) was challenging. The morning was cool and foggy enough, but it got a little muggy and the headwind toward the end of the run was a bit cruel. Other cruel things--dodging bikers and construction workers on the GG Bridge, the nasty uphill near the Legion of Honor & taking a cold water (no ice this time) bath to chill my legs!

Yikes- I'm trying to remind myself that right now is the building phase, so higher mileage and a bit more exhaustion. Things might not be so pretty right now & everything's working hard to get stronger, but it will pay off :)
