18 miles for a nice long run

A few degrees makes a big difference. Yesterday's run was great, for 18 miles, I felt like my old self again. Well, not my old old self with all the doritos and excuses, but my new old self with the 'run all day' attitude.

I ran three loops down on the Seabrook trails, starting at 4:30 AM, we needed flashlights to see our way. The mental bugs were biting early on, and I was calculating what the minimum distance would be for it to still be a good run. But I felt a lot better and the last 12 miles or so seemed to float by like marshmallows in a stream of semi-cured Jello on a crisp Colorado morn.

I slept late this morning, and ran another loop on the trails this morning at about 10:00, and I still felt good. That makes about 40 miles for the week, which is pretty good for having two off days.

I hope everybody is having a good long weekend.

Take care of yourselves, and each other.
