A nice but slow 8-miles

I ran 8 miles on the Jordan River Parkway. I felt fine during the run, and since I was increasing my distance significantly, I ran a slow pace (my last half mile was at a pace of 15:04 minutes). The sky was full of sun and beautiful clouds. The temperature was in the low 60s (F), and the Wasatch Mountains are snow covered and were beautiful against the blue sky.

Had a 6-7 mph headwind going out and a nice tailwind coming back.

I started to get thirsty during my run, and I think I'll start carrying water on my two longer runs when the temperature is in the mid 50s or higher.
