Cooler Temps

Last night, a "cold" front blew in and this morning it was a glorious 56 degrees outside, with only 42% humidity. PERFECT running weather! I didn't get out until almost 9 am, but it didn't matter, because it was still nice and cool; and with overcast skies, it really did feel like fall running.

I did 5 miles, and with the cooler temps, I was able to run a bit faster than I have been lately, and I finished the fiver in 52:20 with an average 10:28/mile pace. With such minimal humidity, I finished the run and felt as though I'd hardly sweat; it was awesome!

So, I didn't have to get up at the ass crack of dawn, but I still got it done early in the day; now, I can spend the rest of the day doing...well, nothing, I hope!
