Tiny Run

Nothing special. Just a short and slow three miles. Nice to wake up to it being 48F/9C outside but after a couple of lattes and checking up on friends running the Vermont 100 it had warmed up to the lower 60s by the time I headed out the door.

Feeling pretty good for the half marathon tomorrow. I've only raced one before, the Midcoast Half last March. Did very well there, finishing in 1:24:53 on a very hilly course. Tomorrow's course is very flat. I do better on hills, so not sure how that'll translate over, but I expect to break last March's time. Regardless, this will serve as another great building block for the goal race, the MDI Marathon in three months.

Ran 3.0 miles @ 8:25/mile pace.
Paved roads and dirt trails.
Slightly hilly.
Lower 60s, sunny.
Brooks Mach 13, shorts, short sleeved shirt.
