Cannot explain why I ran the first leg so fast without pushing it. I just felt relaxed and noticed I was going fast. I didn't pay attention to pace but focused on HR and exertion. I just went fast! Harder with momo on the second lap; she was a little scared running under that headlamp. I can't blame her; running in the dark with a beam of light coming out of my forehead is something that doesn't make sense in the natural world.
