Shook the cobwebs loose this morning with a nice and easy 4.5 mile run with my better half. It was a clear and sunny yet cold morning when Anya and I stepped out of the house and I almost turned around. After yesterday's Mountain Mist 50K, I wasn't in the mood to start the day off being cold. However, I had bundled up because I knew I wasn't going to go fast after yesterday's effort, even though I did try to keep the race in perspective by treating it as a training run. Anya hadn't run in over 2 weeks due to Bronchitis, so that was another reason to take it easy today. I started and finished the run feeling good. I really enjoyed being out for a run with Anya since we hadn't really done that since we completed the Disneyland Half Marathon together.
