Since when did mid-range runs start feeling like long runs? Either way, today was a good day! The morning air was crisp and cool. The sun rose up among puffy clouds. No bugs were flying in my teeth. And my legs drove me all they way to the finish. I tried to make this run a pace run, and it turned out to be a perfect morning for that attempt. By the way, in case you're curious, I filled out my profile for Team M3 yesterday (that photo is not of me!). Please feel free to take a look at it and check out this awesome volunteer opportunity for next year's Chicago Marathon.
