avg 8:35.  Ran through the Olympus neighborhood after ups on Kentucky.  Was not really feeling it.  Need to find some kind of motivating ran to keep in sights in January maybe.

Enjoyed this one, but it also reminded me that 7 miles and beyond is approaching limits of my bodily comfort zone.  I have some serious work to do in the long run category if I am going to go for marathon.  avg 8:48

Chilly run with a couple thousand strangers.  I tried to push my old man legs to break 24 minutes.  This seemed a toughish course as the first 1.5 is fairly uphill.  I felt good because I finished strong and was mostly around fit people and a smattering of 9 year olds which always blows me away.  Then ran the nearly four miles home in avg 8:40.   Splits 8:24, 7:30, 7:17 then sprint.  Have a day full of food and gratitude.
