What a beautiful day!  60 degrees, clear skies, no wind.

Went out for a 10 miler through SARA Park which is a nice hilly run.  I didn't feel like I was running that well, but each mile kept coming in faster than anticipated.  I just went with it and ended up doing 10 miles in 1:14:38.  AP 7:28

I know that isn't blazing fast, but I felt like I was running more like an 8:00 pace, so I'll take it.

Another amazing morning: 57 degrees and no wind.  I was about half way through my run when the sun came up over the mountains.  I love being out on a run at that time of the day. It always seems so peaceful.  I especially love seeing the sun starting to shine on the lake.

Anyways, I did the Jamaica Loop which has about a 500 to 600 foot climb for the first 3.5 miles and then a nice desent of that same about for the last 6.5 miles.  I ran the first 3.5 conservatively so I'd have energy to enjoy the downhill.  I averaged 6:49 for the last 6 miles, which of course was gravity aided, but still was fun.  

Total run: 10 miles, 1:13:18, AP 7:20
