Ran with Joe, Jamie, Leah, and Daisy starting from Longleaf. We first did about 3.1 miles in Longleaf before heading up the Starkey Blvd bike trail. Weather felt almost cool but it was humid and as it warmed it, heat started getting to me a bit.
We stopped at Diane's house for a quick drink, then to the end of Alico Pass, turned around and continued north on Starkey Blvd again and into the park to the shelter area. Someone had brought freeze pops which were most welcome and refreshing.
Headed back out from the park and back down Starkey. With just under two miles to go I had a sudden urge to stop and walk for a bit which normally I ignore but this time ended up taking a short walk break. Joe and Jamie went ahead which was good because I picked it up a little and kept them in my sights with my last mile at 8:15.
I had not planned on 17 miles, was thinking more like 13-14 miles, havent run much over 12 in quite some time, good to get back into the swing of things as far as mileage.
