8.9 Miles

Time to start stretching the long run distance. October is not too far away.

The alarm went off at 5 AM. The snooze button was hit about 6 times. Body was still feeling the effects of Friday evening workout and the abusive powers of a 12 gauge shotgun from Saturday's Pigeon shoot. Plus it was cloudy and drizzly. Perfect recipe for sleeping in.

Or not.

Time: 6:30 AM
Temp: 74F
Humidity: 86%
Distance: 8.9 Miles
Time: 1:28:11
Pace: 9:54/mile
Shoes: Kayano XII (193.5 miles)

Timing was impeccable. I did not get rained on. The streets were wet and puddles were everywhere.

I came back just drenching in sweat. Sunday is starting out pretty good.

Hi Jess,

Let me get in shape first. Maybe in the fall?
