Summary:

Started raining the second I left my apartment at 7am.  The rain actually felt good considering that it was still 80 degrees out.  Loved my new route out to Castle Island.  Very scenic and had a great elevation mix too.  Felt great until mile 9, slowed down a bit and had my first water.  Should have had it much earlier as I was pretty dehydrated at this point.  By mile 10 I opened the Gu which made me feel a bit nauseous and actually made me much more thirsty.  Drank a lot of water over the next mile or two.  By mile 12 I was pretty defeated but was able to power on knowing how close I was to completion.  I finished and stretched feeling pretty good.  Right inner ankle is sore.  Left inner thigh is also sore.  Hydrated with coconut water, foam rolled and rested for 2 hours.  Overall it was a good workout.
