Beautiful Run

I had the best run I’ve had in a while Tuesday night.  We had a cold front come through Sunday night and stall out over us.  It brought rain all day Mon and Tues.  We needed it desperately.  But more importantly, it brought much colder temps.  Highs Mon and Tues were in the 70’s.  It was beautiful, and a glimpse of fall, right around the corner.  I know we’ll be hit in the face with at least one more week of high 90’s, but man I can’t wait for the fall and winter and the cooler temps.

But my Monday lunch run was cancelled, as was the Tues lunch run.  So was Basketball Tues night.  So as it had let up on the rain I took off with the pup around 8:45pm on Tues.  The legs felt great after 2 days of unintentional rest, so I figured I’d do 4 miles, as the pup can’t do much more.  The temp was perfect, and the dampness in the air made it even better.  The legs did great, and I even put in .8 miles at a sub 8 min pace.  Ended up with 4.2 miles in 35:30.  Even got Tiger Woods congratulations for my fastest mile on the ipod.

Man I can’t wait for more 60-70 degree runs.
