What a wonderful morning to run in Florida! It was overcast so there was no sun beating down on me and the temperature was bearable. I originally planned on running a 10k, but I was motivated by the weather and the fact that I took an off day yesterday, so I added a little extra. I ran the usual routes around my neighborhood including the local park a couple miles a way. I love running in that park because it is mostly shaded and the scenery is beautiful. Boston isn’t the only beautiful city! There was a relaxed atmosphere in the park as people enjoyed their Labor Day. I saw people playing Frisbee, someone fishing, families having cook outs, and even a truck selling flavored ice. I just ran through it all enjoying the sights. When I left the park I spotted my favorite sight: horses! I do love running by the horses; I just wish that I could ride them. I started to feel great on my run at about mile five and I picked up the speed a bit. The 7.09 miles lasted 1:04:08 giving me an average pace of 9:02 with my last mile being the fastest at 8:36. It was a great overall relaxing run. I just hope the weather is that runner-friendly tomorrow morning!
