Ran 9.1 miles @ 9:02/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 142/162
Upper 50s to lower 60s, partly cloudy.
Woke up early again to meet Steve (another Vermont 100 runner) at Pineland Farms at 6am to get in a run. Steve is great company and will be part of the pretty sizable Maine entourage we have going to the race in two weeks. He had been there about an hour before I got there and swept by the parking lot to meet up. We headed off enjoying the great weather and scenery while clocking in the miles at an easy pace. Extremely hilly area with constant ups and downs, many of them steep.
Felt very strong through most of the run, though the legs were a bit tired in the last half mile from the workout yesterday evening, but that's to be expected. I continue to be very happy with the shape I'm in for the race, all things considered. It'll be a great time for sure.
On another note, wanted to share this clip that I first saw on Bob Gentile's blog. Great stuff.
