A great 7.5 mile run

In attempt to give my body more variety in my running, I thought I'd move my 5-mile rest run around. So, today I ran 7.5 miles instead of 5 miles. The 7.5 miles is an increase of 0.5 miles. I had a good run. The temperature was in the low 50s (F), the sky was cloudy, and it was a great day for running.

I was passed by a guy who was really moving. He looked to be in his 30s, and he was probably running 7 minute miles.


  1. Way to switch it up!! Don't you hate those speedy young wipper snappers:)

  2. Keep up the running. I hope I'm still running when I get your age. You inspire more people than you even know, and with your blog I have the courage to run on.
    Thanks, & God-Speed.
    Your Pal,
    Jimmy J....

  3. great for you. I wish it was in the 50's here!
