I ran this solo, except for the first interval where I briefly had Phil and Tim running with me. After that, I was pretty lonely, but I figured it didn't really matter since I have a half marathon this Saturday. Not much to report, except that I came away feeling prepped and ready for hopefully a great half on Sunday in DC. About mid-morning, Meagan texted me: "So, your half is cancelled?" I had no idea what she was talking about, but after some facebook stalking, I discovered that the Woodrow Wilson Half course went right through a national park, which was closed due to the government shutdown. The half was cancelled, but I didn't know that during the workout. If I had, I definitely would have done a couple more repeats.
