The run was especially beautiful today. It was sunny and windy, and the horizon to the west was really dark and rainy. I dont think I have said it before, but my favorite weather is when its really warm, yet dark and windy.....dont ask why :) Most of the run was sunny until the end when the clouds finally moved in and it started sprinkling:
Okay, this looks much darker than it was
I was planning on running slowly but I felt great. My 10:00 mile pace quickly moved down to a 9:30/mile pace. This was the first longer run that was well under 10:00 miles! At the end of the run I could have kept going and was averaging 9:27/mile for all of the 9 miles! Here's hoping to a good time for the Mercer Half next week!!
Post run stretching
Have a great weekend! St Pats Dash tomorrow morning!
