Fine Day for a Fine Run

Ran 10.1 miles @ 7:44/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 160/173
Paved roads.
Very hilly.
Mid, upper 60s. Sunny.

Ah, this was a run that I needed. A relaxing day fishing for mackerel off the coast of Rockland yesterday while seals and porpoises played close to the boat, along with a much improved diet now that my mouth is healing up seemed to do me some good. Felt very much like my old self, unlike my runs last Saturday and Sunday. Energy felt great and I put out out what for me is a moderate pace on a hilly course and did it with seemingly little effort.

Running in weather like this makes it easy. Cool dry air is in place and no heat waves are in sight for at least the next week. Dawned on me during today's run that the first signs of autumn are only about a month away. Looking forward to that, as always.

And a big congrats to blog buddy Olga for a fantastic performance at the Cool 12-hour ultra over the weekend, despite numerous obstacles. She simply rocks. It's a great read, so check it out if you can.

Ah yes, the weather has definitely taken a turn towards autumn...ain't life grand? At least until November anyway.
