It was much cooler and windier than I expected this morning. It was a VERY nice morning for a run. It sprinkled on us for a couple of miles, but it was just about as good as running weather gets in May in Alabama. It was a no excuses kind of a day.
Carl, Mike, and I were up front, with Lanier and Mark Y. running an easier pace. Mike pushed the pace early, and it did feel more difficult than it actually was. By the mid miles, though, Carl and I were both able to carry on conversation at a pace in the low 7:00 range. We finished up in 1:11:30 for a 7:09 average pace.
