Day 108. I'm such a slacker. I played snooze tag until I could see daylight. No Rebecca today, but I decided to go at her pace, so my legs could have another easy day. Not too easy, as I decided to run and out-and-back toward Mt. Wachusett. Just before the turn around point, I had to climb a ridiculous hill (almost 7% grade, elevation profile here: http://farm6.static.flickr.com/5012/5473762406_72229c5ee5_o.png )

My reward: The sun shining brightly over fields at the farm on top of the hill, blanketing the mountain in the distance. Next week, I'll try to time it so I get up there for sun rise.

I think it's safe to say my Garmin chest strap HRM batteries need to be replaced. I spent the better part of the second half of this run, laughing at my wrist as it reported HR > 200 as I lazily bounced down the hill back home at a blistering 10:25 pace =)

Hope you all have a great day today. Happy Friday Eve everybody!

    Sounds so nice, I wonder how long those batteries last anyway. Mine's coming on a year old now.
