Another great morning for a run. The temps have finally climbed up enough to ditch the hat and gloves, at least for now. The weatherman said its 44 degrees outside. Good enough for me. My usual 5AM running buddies were either running on their own today or taking a day off. I decided last night to use this opportunity to run with my fiancé on her first 4 miler on the road in preparation for her first 4 mile race in a couple of weeks. I also wanted to get outside to give my new toy (Garmin Forerunner 310XT) a trial run. Read my review here. In order to keep my weekly mileage up in preparation for my next ultra, I went ahead and ran a 4 mile loop on my old stomping ground, the UAH campus. I've logged so many miles on this campus running from my house, that I know every distance by heart, regardless of where you decide to turn to extend or shorten your run. Running this course also allowed me to run back to my house to pick up my fiancé for her 4 miler. After pushing quite a bit on yesterday's first run, I decided to take the foot of the gas on both loops today. However, we still managed to run quite a decent pace for the second half of my run. Not bad at all for her first 4 miles of continued running on the road. By the way, I was hoping to come across Richard on his way to work but our paths never crossed. Maybe he's running a different route. 8 miles total for the day.
