New best 13-mile time

I just PR'd at the 13 mile distance! We ran long today with a steady incline of 500 feet over the first four miles. Carol did ten, and I tacked on two laps in Sugarhouse for an additional three. I forced myself to run up all of the hills in the park; the last two were painful. Then, I checked my time at 13th and 21st so that I would know how long it took me to run the last two miles. I didn't allow myself to walk; my only break was at 7th. I really pushed myself and managed to pull out sub-10s in the last two miles! Wahoo!!! It was a good run and a beautiful morning. My average pace was 11:01 - YEAH!
