It's just not right calling these miles "easy" as there was nothing easy about them! I can't run slow enough in this weather to keep from overheating! Hopefully getting some cooler weather in the next few days.

Back home and big mileage for me. First 15 miler for quite a while. The temp dropped overnight so it was good, with a little drizzle. Feeling good for my half in a couple of weeks.

Wow...The weather really changed1 34 degrees with 14 mph wind makes it cold...!!! I didn't feel very good on this run. It seemed much harder than the numbers reflect.
