Aren't they cute carrots? They are also cancer-fighting super heroes but that's another story.
So I didn't catch up to them but I did have probably the fastest 7 miles (walking) I've ever had. Ever. I was shocked when I glanced down and saw 13 as the first number in my pace. Normally the only time I see a 13 minute mile is when I'm running and I feel like I'm about to die. Even more shocking is that once I got warmed up and the shin splints went away, I was cruising. Negative splits up until mile 6 and then I had an exact repeat. I don't think I could have two miles at the exact same pace again if I tried.
