“A person should set his goals as early as he can and devote all his energy and talent to getting there. With enough effort, he may achieve it. Or he may find something that is even more rewarding. But in the end, no matter what the outcome, he will know he has been alive.” - Walt Disney

Great Day, Great Run!

Today is an amazingly gorgeous day - cool temps this morning, predicted 70's this afternoon, and not a cloud in the sky!!!  I rolled out of bed and eventually made it out on the trail about 9:15.  I wasn't feeling all that motivated to run, but I did want to take advantage of the nice day and get an outdoor run in before it got too hot.  While doing my warm-up walk, I decided to concentrate on working on an even cadence and steady pace and not worry about speed.  I listened to the beeps on my Garmin for the run/walk intervals, but wasn't "watching the clock."  I just enjoyed the day and people-watched, since there were so many to see on such a great day!  Turns out, I had an great run without feeling like I was working that hard!

Today's stats:
  • 10 minute warm-up walk
  • 3.02 mi; 0:36:58 min; 12:14 min/mi avg. pace
