Not so long run…

August 4, 2008

Well, the “20 miler” I had scheduled for this Saturday did not happen.  Let’s see…

Wake up at 4:15, check.
Start running at 5:15, check.
Run the first 10 miles (4 of which was shirtless) before my group started at 7, check.
Continue for another 10 miles with the group, no check.

I let the heat/humidity get the best of me and surrendered after 10.  I’ve decided to check the weather every morning and try and get the 20 miler in as soon as the weather cooperates (it was 82 degrees w/ 90% humidity at 5:15 am when I started Saturday).  Anything in the low 70s equals go time over the next week or so.
