8 miles on an out-and-back on Sandy Rd, not just loops. 54 minutes again, had to work for it. Course is tough as hell, and aside from a short breather at the top of the BIG hill 1.5 miles in, no breaks. First time I've accomplished that, and this was maybe the 4th time out of the 50+ times I've ran this route I ran the first 1.5 without stopping. Also the farthest I've gone on it save once in the fall of 2017 where I made it 7 miles out. Gonna take a few more weeks to beat that. Really just a brutal course. Hills make heroes!
