We got an early start this morning, which was a good thing because the sun was full strength and the day warmed quickly. I did three loops totaling fifteen miles, stopping at the car for water after each, and got a little slower with each loop. The temperature was about 60 when we started and 77 when we finished three hours later. There is some shade on these trails, but not a lot.
|I really do love running here, |
all the more when fall comes.
I took four gels along the way, and carried water, drinking more of it than I had expected. I actually ran out, but got a refill from a handy spigot in the parking lot. I’ll have to remember where that spigot is.
Whining: Zero! That’s very nice.
Loops: 1:33:41 for 7.97 mi (pace 11:45), 47:43 for 4.03 (pace 11:50), 37:19 for 3.01 (pace 12:24), total 2:58:42 for 15.01, overall pace 11:54.
