    great Up and at 'em! 8.07 km 00:44 08:42 pace

    Absolutely gorgeous morning, nice temps, no wind, humidity under control, thank you universe; lots of zigging and zagging through the hood; up a bit later than usual, taking the day off to play gol... read more

    great Cooling it down! 8.5 km 00:45 08:28 pace

    Wow, did I need this after yesterday morning's thick run; temp dropped down to 11C/52F, much lower humidity and it felt great; pep in the step, happy run!

  3. RUN
    alright 5.13 km 00:28 08:55 pace

    A short run, but what a tough slug that was! I'm thinking 96% humidity may have had something to do with it!

      Summer's a little early isn't it? Great job Mark! I'm about to leave - it's raining here

    alright Nice, then whoops! 8.01 km 00:42 08:28 pace

    Nice run on the Boardwalk and then out along the spit, the wind was on the stiff side for the inbound portion, so just focused on keeping the cadence high and form strong; big time chafe action des... read more

      DM is all about TMI!! Looks like a good, strong run though. More good work with the quicker cadence -- seems to be paying off for you nicely!

      Glad the tummy woes passed quickly. No fun that. Nice job cleansing the pores out there this morning, Mark! Seems like the quicker cadence is working well for you -- keep it up!

      Great run, Mark, and nice to stir those childhood memories sometimes. I think about how much freedom to roam and play I had growing up- outdoors is a healthy place for kids!

      Congrats:

      I tend to go out too fast too. But I think of it as a buffer if things go bad in the second half. Still learning, so don't take too much away from my advice. I could be wrong. You ran a a great race regardless. Celebrate!
