Jamie C. and I pulled into the parking lot at SCP just as our intended running group was leaving, so I knew I was going to end up running the last few miles by myself, but that was okay. We set out on our loop of the park, but I lost Jamie at about mile 3 to a restroom break. That left me with my tunes for the next 5. Not sure what it is about solo running that gets into my head, but it does. My goal for the summer is to build my base so that a half in the fall does not kick my tail. I'm pretty consistent at 6 miles, so I decided to go for 8 today and see how it felt. So it was sad that at mile 5 I was ready to stop. After I left the park, I headed up Ridge to 29th and went west, which has a tough uphill grade to it ... that didn't help. I turned around at Tyler and headed back to the park and have never been so glad to see that finish line. The last 3 miles really hurt, which was a little discouraging. I will do that distance again next weekend...hopefully with better results!

    These summer runs are tough, but when fall races come around and temps are cooler you will like you are flying

    Oh, Lisa I'm so sorry we missed you. The hill is a killer on 29th. Great job pushing through. I have 8 on the schedule for Saturday as well, hopefully we can hook up.

    That hill doesn't seem so bad. I've driven it probably a dozen times!

    Crud. Nothing worse than seeing your group run off into the distance. Nice miles today. Going solo and battling the heat is tough.
