Tough but slow trail run this morning. After last night's speed workout, I was kinda glad Rich wasn't feeling his usual self with heavy legs. Ed was ready for anything, as usual. Since Rich felt sluggish and wanted to go slow, I was only happy to oblige. Even though we went at a very slow pace, we still had to climb 1200 feet on the 4.75 mile outbound leg. There was an added benefit to slowing down and "smelling the roses". We got to see a skulk of foxes, a family of three just 100 feet or so below our trail after we climbed to the top of Monte Sano on Cold Springs trail. Ed, Rich and I managed to beat the heat by taking of at our usual 5AM time slot and we even got to enjoy a cool breeze as we reached the top of Monte Sano. I made sure I hydrated at the fountain at the Ranger Station before we continued back down the mountain. The humidity levels have really been getting to me, increasing my sweat rate to levels well above previous summers.
