Running with Pictures

17 days until my 3rd half marathon. I’m feeling strong going into this race but want to make sure I keep healthy while still putting in another long run. I truly enjoyed my 10 miler yesterday. I held a 9:00/mile pace and was able to take in a packet of Clif Shot Bloks in Strawberry without any trouble. The run started around 9 am (new time) so the sun was already higher than normal. Towards the end, it definitely started to get toasty but as long as I took water in my body seemed to respond well.

The run was made more enjoyable by the picture taking along the route. Ready for 10 miles?! Here we go!
