Today I'd like to give thanks for cooler temperatures. This summer has been HOT HOT HOT, with many of my training runs occurring with temps in the 80's or higher and mega amounts of humidity.
Today, I woke up to this:
Those cooler temperatures allowed me to run one of my best 8 miles ever. I ran the last 3 miles with an average pace of about 9:33 m/m! It took me 5 miles to get to that point, but those last 3 miles were epic.
