An uneventful but nice rest run
I ran for distance instead of time because I needed to get home asap. I ran the 3 miles in 55 minutes. I was out just before noon, but there was still some morning shade. The shade temperature during my run was in the low 80s (F). I felt fine during the run, which isn't bad since my last meal was last night. Just before I ran, I ate a few handfuls of dry Cheerios.
