Ran the Deception Pass 25k yesterday. Conditions were perfect for a mid-December day in the Pacific Northwest, with overcast skies and temperatures rising to the 40s. This year the 25k and 50k are being held on different days. I ran the 25k because I’m really not up for the 50k right now.
I saw three seals swimming in Deception Pass as I crossed the bridge the first time. Beautiful views throughout the course. This is one of the more beautiful 50ks out there.
I was reduced to walking and jogging, due to ongoing issues. I finished towards the back. But it was a good morning. I stopped for cod and chips at the Shrimp Shack on the way home, prior to more Christmas activities.
Hopefully I can use this one to kickstart me towards more systematic training. Not sure what the next event will be, but I need to line something up.
Thanks Rainshadow Running and everyone involved in organizing the run.
