Around a dozen runners, maybe more, congregated in the parking lot and I thought to myself this is a good-sized crowd. Then, around a dozen more emerged from the woods who had gotten an early start and had swung back by to meet up with the 8am crowd. Super swarm! Sweet!
Plan today was to go easy but it ended up being a solid moderate-paced effort. I decided that was okay since I took the past two days off because of the persistant runny nose and coughing. Very nice to run with a variety of people including Stephen, David R., Nick and David B.
Felt pretty strong out there overall. Only hinderance was the head cold stuff, but the energy levels were still normal and I actually felt better as the run went along. Glad I'm on the tail end of it. Picked up some OJ and garlic on the way home and that should be the nail in the coffin.
Ran 10.0 miles @ 8:47/mile pace.
Lower 30s to lower 40s, partly cloudy.
