Good thing God never forgets.
7 minute first mile, BK side by side then forged ahead. Group of 6 with me lagging. Promised myself to hit the water on the way back and go (2/4 mile mark). 21:55 at half, feeling the 3 points to the wind. Pushed it, BK out of reach, DC forgettaboutit. One guy tied his laces, then caught back up and passed no-shirt. I was 37 at 5m and pushing it but just staying the same. Around the last bend and more finally caught no shirt, he encouraged me to beat laces, which I gruntingly did beyond the .2. Can definitely push harder, just don't know this edge with no mileage. Hope to run a minute faster on course through the 15K if foot will let me.
All praise to incomprehensible yet knowable God who reveals Himself through the God-Man who offers eternal salvation to all who simply believe in Him.
