Monday’s running and fun facts

Got outside this morning and ran 5 pretty fast miles. (at least for me) I ran here in Big Horn, not in my virtual treadmill life.  It was really nice weather so I ran at about 10:00 a.m.  One important thing I forgot.  I am so used to heading out the door when the sun is barely up, if at all, that I forgot about the need for a hat or sunglasses.  Its not fun to run while squinting.

My miles splits were:  9:02, 8:44, 8:33, 9:56, 9:42.  And although this is really good times for me, I sure tire quickly.  Hopefully that will improve as I train.

Then off to run a number of errands.  I  saw some interesting things on my way into town.
