Today, I officially earned DOMINION over Lake Merritt.
Chatting with my buddies after Sunday’s race, I “lamented” the fact that I really *had* to run the lake without stopping now. I had completed a 5k without walking so it was undeniably within my physical and mental capabilities.

Because I’m insane, I also went to Dailey Method and pushed myself so hard during thigh work that I almost cried. No joke.
Then I went home, took a bath, and iced my knee which had alerted me to its presence after the run. It didn’t hurt but the awareness was enough to warrant some icy love. I’m being particularly attentive for a specific reason that I will reveal tomorrow (though if you check out the categories of this post, you might figure it out!
