Morning run

Today's run was a pretty good one. I got up at 7 a.m. to head out, since we're going to busy the rest of the day. I wanted to make sure I would be done before the kids woke up so Tim could sleep in a little. I am normally not a huge fan of mornings, but this one was a good one for running. It was still overcast and cool, with some fog nestled among the groves of trees. It was pretty, and the coolness kept me from overheating.

Before I headed out I ate half a banana because my stomach was growling. The first two miles felt really good. It was in Mile 3 somewhere that I had wished I had eaten the entire banana. I decided to really slow it down in Mile 4. It's funny how running a mile in 11:25 now feels really slow to me. LOL! I still remember how, a few months ago, anything under 12 minutes felt like I was flying (and dying, ha ha). I guess I have come a long way during these past seven months.

Hope all my American running buddies have a wonderful 4th!

Today's stats:
Distance: four miles
Time: 44:17
Pace: 11:04 minute/mile

Splits:
Mile 1: 11:08
Mile 2: 10:37
