great New Year's Day 7 mi 01:00 08:38 pace

First day of real marathon training. Went out for a run on a chilly, rainy New Year's Morning. Shortly after I started, I was startled by a crashing in the woods and a very large deer runs out about 20 feet from me. It hit the road and slipped and fell, popped up and kept going. Scared the crap out of me! A little adrenaline to start the year off. The rest of the run was pleasant, a little rain, no wind, very little traffic. Listened to some classic rock on the ipod and contemplated the upcoming year. Very grateful for my friends here on dailymile. Hit the turnaround 3.5 miles at 32 minutes, and finished the 7 at 1:00:32 for a small negative split. 8:50, 8:49, 8:46, 8:48, 8:43, 8:50, 7:46
Happy New Year!

    What a great way to start the year! The deer was probably scared to death by this strange guy singing and taking pictures while running! Happy 2013! When are we going to race in HI?

    Nice run to start the new year off right. You're lucky the deer didn't run into you. I would have had wobbly legs after that.
