run 3:03:00  32.0 km (5:43 / km)
In 20 degrees at 7:45 am Cricket and I zoomed along the #1 Hwy in sleepy little Cambridge, up the killer Cambridge Mtn road and all the way down the other side of the mtn. The humidity was broken only by the lovely breeze on the top of the mtn. Down into North Alton and along into Kentville. At 20 kms we had taken 1:58 minutes and felt strong. Having to face the last 12 kms along the #1 Hwy with cars/trucks zooming head on past us, was demoralizing. I turned my ankle and Cricket was now 25 metres ahead. I wanted to walk, but I am the IronQueen so I shuffled home. The last 1km was accomplished ONLY by repeating my mantra, "Diet Coke, Fresca, hot tub, diet coke, Fresca, hot tub". I'm still 2 minutes faster than last wk and it was a better run for the first 3/4.
