It felt colder than I expected throughout the run. It stayed 31F throughout the run with a small north breeze. The nice thing about the course is that it is mostly protected from a north wind. The stretches that are north bound are either uphill or in neighborhoods with some trees or houses to block the wind. When I stopped running, I got cold quickly!
It was a very good run. We were able to run each mile faster than the previous one, starting at 9:01 and finishing at 6:42, with a 7:42 overall average pace. I needed some marathon pace miles since yesterday called for MP miles, but I was on the trail instead.
