cool running

This morning it was nice and cool (68 at 9am) and cloudy. It's been like this for a few days now. It's such a nice change from the mid-ninties we've had for months. Still I had a hard time getting out into the day but after just enough coffee I decided to try for at least an easy three miler. Once I was out there running, I felt pretty good so I headed toward the bridge. Then I remembered that the AC 100 started in Wrightwood this morning and that gave me the motivation to push myself a little further. I ended up running to Johnson Rock/Field where the AC 100 fininshes making it about fifteen miles roundtrip for me (an amazing one hundred miles for the AC 100 runners - go Catra!) I thought there might be some people already there setting up the finish line but it was totally empty. I guess no runner was expected for another 14 hours so there was plenty of time to set up sometime this afternoon/evening. The run felt good. The sun came out about halfway through. I haven't run that far in a long time so I was surprised that my form and strength held up pretty well. Hopefully this will lead me into a solid fall running season.

Mindful Mule's rear rim is totally destroyed - the concaving side wall cracked all the way around on both sides - overhaul coming soon - had a post all ready to go when my computer died, will post more soon, don't feel like retyping...
