The livin' is easy

So I ran 10 miles this morning, before the intense heat arrives. We've definitely hit summertime. I love it!! I went into the forest for my Monday morning trail run. The new trail shoes really worked great. I tried to push the pace but the trails won't allow fast pace, too difficult, rocky, treacherous! Yet I ran the whole way and was able to finish strong, best mile was 9:5o, slowest was 14:56-2K hill!
I plan on trying to get out early everyday this week because they are calling for high 90's. I took 44 oz of fluids with me today and used all of it!
Hope to get 7 miles of hills Wednesday. Today is BD #54. I'm gonna watch Phil win the US Open, go to Lambert's for dinner and spend the whole day with my Sweetheart!
Hope it's summertime in your neck of the woods, isn't it the best time of year!!?? Sweet sunsets, listening to the night sounds on the back porch, sipping lemonade.....

I ran early also. I liked the heat, but I think I also get tired of it too. My next race will be a trail 50k which will take me 8 hours, on a July day! So at least I am getting acclimated.

Your run sounded great.

Phil almost pulled it out in the end. I'm a little sad Ricky choked like he did :(

You are getting some fantastic running done! Nice job waking up early and beating the heat. It looks like I need to start doing that.

Rough week
