Short post tonight. After work today Barry and I ran a little over 3 miles at the trail in town. I felt much better than I did last night. My legs felt strong and I felt comfortable running a bit under a 10 minute per mile pace. It rained all day today, but it had stopped by the time we headed out to run. It was 39 degrees outside, so I got to run in shorts again!
The trail we ran on this evening is the same one I ran at on Saturday. It was in much better condition. The town had come through and spread new crushed gravel, filled in holes, and cleared debris.
After tonight’s run I’m feeling a little more confidant about the race this weekend. Tonight’s run may have been just what I needed.
