Street Modified Halfs

Hey, today makes one year I've been a blogger! I am so thankful I started this blog. I feel like I've made a bunch of friends, I know I've learned more about my sport, I enjoy seeing others succeed, and it is a great way to keep records of training. It can become somewhat addictive!
Today the rains came! The leaves are falling in a hurry! That does make for tricky running with the leaves all over the road, slickery and covering rocks, etc.
I was really wanting to do yassos but couldn't make the track so I did a one mile warm up and did 7x 1/2 mile with a 1/2 mile rest in between each half. I had to take the hills and dales so it was a pretty good work-out. Drizzled the whole way, strong south wind, about 60 degrees. Wonderful!! Rest day tomorrow!
8.0 miles/1:17:56/ 9:44's. I'm enjoying the taper!!!! Peace!

Rain! Nice workout, it's been fun following you up to your race. I guess it's too early to ask what's next. Glad you're enjoying the taper.

I appreciate the kind words you left on my blog. I jumped right over to yours and already feel like I know you! Good luck in just over a week. I hope you break 4 hours. Your PR in the half would indicate theat a sub-4 is in the cards!
