Just couldn't run another day in the heat so waited and rode my bike for the first time in a long time. 92 degrees, very windy.

18 miles @ 16 mph.

Finally a cool front blew in, it was really windy though. I broke this run into four 3.5 mile sections trying to manage my effort. I ran my small loop twice so the hills skew the times somewhat. Don't think I'm in as good shape as I have been in the past but at least I know I can cover the 13.1 miles!
