Fresh cut grass!  Smelled like summer on this one.  

Kind of an impromptu tempo.  Hopefully they'll be faster pretty soon:

7:30, 7:19, 7:14, 7:14, 7:15, 7:16, 7:13

Surprisingly felt pretty good.

7:32 AP.  All of my miles were right around 7:35, but I had a couple faster ones in there.

Didn't run all week.. Going to have to get better at that.

Time to buy another pair of shoes and start tracking miles on them again.

I forgot to post the other day.. Brayden (11) ran his second 5k the other day.  His first one was a couple years ago, and he ran ~37 minutes.  Before the Brookings Marathon the other day, he ran his second 5k in 29:18!! I called him a half hour before the race and asked him if he felt like trying it.  He said, "sure",  Luckily he wore gym shorts and running shoes to school that day.  I was really pumped for him.  He ran the whole thing by himself.  I think my favorite part though was how crappy he felt when he was done.  You, know... the bent over at the waste like you feel like you're going to puke.   :)   He must've pushed himself.

7:37 pace.  I have a pretty bad cold, but this didn’t feel as bad as I thought it would.  Thunderstorms the next couple days so sneaking a run in might be a challenge.

These weren't quite marathon pace, but they were marathon effort.  :)  92 degrees and 15 mph wind. And HUMID!!  Pretty sure some sort of strom will blow up tonight. 

Ran when Hannah and Brayden were out sweating as much as me at soccer practice. And now Brayden is off to baseball. Just found out today that he made the traveling team!

7:37 AP again.

7:42 pace. 92° and windy again.  Got rained on for a minute while it was really sunny.  My legs were on the edge of cramping for the last couple miles.

Today's going to be a hot one.  I ran this morning to avoid the 100 degree temp this afternoon.

7:51 pace.  I kind of felt like going faster, but I forced myself to go a little slower.
