Afterwards when The KoB asked how it went, I said... it was good till it wasn't. And as I went through my mile splits out loud, when I mumbled a 12:40 around mile 18, The KoB let out an actual laugh. Yeah, that's right.
Seriously though. In the grand scheme of things, the run was actually pretty decent. I mean, even with that 12:40 mile (and another mile that was right around 12:00), my overall pace for the run was a 10:04. That's totally a win.
