Early Runs 21K for the Mangroves: Condura Skyway Marathon 2013

Quad muscle fever, knee pain, the cold bite of ice on skin. These are telltale signs that I'm celebrating another victory over my willpower. It also means that I'll have a hard time going up and down stairs again in the next couple of days.

Condura Skyway Runs always mark a milestone for me because they coincide with my running anniversary. Three years ago I completed my first mainstream 5K at Condura Run for the Dolphins (2010) and now I have completed yet another 21K and it was up in the Sky! I get pins and needles when I realize that I have gone so far, figuratively and literally. Today I finished with a new PR at 2:44:29 which is faster by more than 4 minutes over the last 21K at RUPM 2012.
