I decided to get up early and do a 6 hour run before work this morning. I started running at exactly 3 am. I set me Strava and didn’t use a gps watch so I only new what time it was. I didn’t want to be watching the miles tick by on my Garmin. There was a full moon so I could see a long was even without my light. That was nice. Early in the run I had a few bad patches where I just didn’t feel very good, but I seemed to get through it. Four and a half hours in I swung by Blake’s house and he joined me for the last hour and a half. That really helped and looking back at the Strava splits I ran fast over that last hour and a half than the rest of the run. As a matter of fact, my last 3 miles were my fastest miles, all right at 8:30. 

I finished right around 6 hours with a total of 39 miles in an average pace of 8:59. Now I gotta go to work. Tonight I’m taking the Boy Scouts camping. Maybe I’ll actually sleep well.
