Gorgeous morning. It rained heavily last night, twice, so it was nice and cool (46F) with a minor breeze. Dew point was high, but cool (I could see my breath sometimes). Left early enough to do 6, and glad I did. I'm glad I left the house - woke up a few minutes before my alarm, and seriously contemplated getting another hour of sleep as I didn't feel it. Turns out I did feel it, and felt just great throughout the run. Hopefully I'll remember how today went next time I'm not "feeling it". Also a good reminder to me that morning runs are WAAAAY easier than Noon or later runs.

3 Noon miles. Watch freaked out on mile 2 and had me running a 5:45 pace, while I was lollygagging around an 8-8:30 pace. Weird.

I love new shoes and gorgeous mornings. New shoes you can count on, gorgeous mornings not so much. It was a completely clear sky this morning, sun came up before 6, dew on the car windows, slight breeze, and gloves/short sleeves temps (45F). Perfect. Got to bed a bit earlier than past days and slept well, so no problem rolling out of bed. Decided to go for 6, then the legs felt tired so was going to stop at 5, but realized Thursday is my rest day and the legs will heal, so I kep running and I'm glad I did. I miss these regular runs, like I miss an old friend. I don't know if that's cute or sad, because my friends are roads/runs and not actually people? I also have friends in my Netflix binge shows, and I miss them when the shows end. Hmmm. Maybe I have issues. I also have FRB friends but I don't know if they're actually people or bots. Only time will tell.
