11.12 mi, 1:34:13, 8:28 avg
After the dogs woke me up at 4:00, I decided to get a little extra sleep and slept until 6:15 and got going a little bit after 6:30. I ran from my house to the Longleaf area, stopping near the little church and saying hi to some of the Striders who were mostly finishing up. I stashed my gatorade and then headed north up the bike trail. Anthony came up behind me and we ran together until just a little bit past the bridge then he turned back, finishing up his 11 miles.
Next, I ran into Corey and Diane at the corner near Aristide, chatted a bit, then Corey headed south. I ran with Diane a bit into Aristide until I reached just over 5.5 miles.
On the way out of the neighborhood I picked up the pace to a 7:48, then a little faster to 6:54, then backed it down a bit to get back to where my gatorade was. I saw one of the rabbits again, drank most of my gatorade and then headed home. I did my final my at 7:21 pace. Pretty happy to get some good miles in this morning. Tomorrow will be busy and I'll have to squeeze in what I can. I'm picking up Tom from running camp at FSU.
Walked the dogs when I got home but did not run Stella today.
