Really bright outside this afternoon, with deep blue, cloudless skies that contrasted with the cooler air. Despite that ideal setting, I felt a bit sluggish at first, primarily from lack of sleep last night. Stomach was also a bit gurgily.
Still nothing bad though. Stomach settled down and once I was more warmed up, the energy started to return and I kicked it in a bit more on the last few miles. Good run.
Weather is looking interesting for Stone Cat 50 this weekend. Looks like a good amount of rain the day or two before the race and we could get some more rain on race day. It'll be cool and muddy, which will be a lot of fun! Will make a warm shower feel all the more nicer afterwards.
Ran 7.1 miles @ 7:42/mile pace.
Upper 40s, sunny.
Saucony Kinvara, shorts, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt.
