After taking a day off to spend some more time recovering from this weekend, I was ready to hit the road again this morning with Ed and James. We met up at Research Park for an put and back 9.5 miler that included a nice trail loop up and down Rainbow Mountain. I hadn't run this route since last December and I was looking forward to running it again. James, Ed and I took off at a decent pace and we maintained this pace for most of the way. While the heat was bearable, the humidity was extreme. I was glad I had brought water along with me. When it was all said and done, we had run the second fastest time eve for this route. The only time we went faster was in December almost 3 years ago. Not bad for a training run in extreme heat and humidity.
