Run #14 - 5 Miles in the Fall
Wowee - what a morning! I was out the door at 5:34 AM, the temperature was 64 degrees, and it was dark. I was a little apprehensive about the whole thing for various reasons... but it turned out to be fabulous. I don't know if it's the cooler weather or what, but my running efficiency seems to have improved. I am getting better results with less effort. You can't beat that! I did the 5 miles in 58:31 for an average pace of 11:43 per mile. I know the last mile was completed in the 10-minute range, which makes me very happy. Sometimes the last mile is the hardest, even though I always like to give a "big finish" at the very end. And, once again, I went sans-MP3. Overall, a great morning!
