Nine mile Thursday becomes 10 MILE THURSDAY!

As the title states, I upped my Thursday run by a mile to make it an even 10 miles. I will play around with the format but I will try and stay around the 10 mile total. The only problem with adding mileage is that I have to get up earlier. I left the house around 5:40 this morning. The nicest part is that it is usually not windy in the morning.

I got as far as 60th W. and Ave. N before turning around. For those of you out of the area that means I was able to get up to some decent hills. My first mile was 8:10, I then averaged 7:30 for the next 4 miles until my Garmin battery died.

I'm sure I was faster on the way home since it is all down hill. I was at 5.25 miles at the turnaround so my total was 10.5miles. When I got home I did 4x100 striders in front of the house.

For those of you looking for a new challenging race, how about the Glamour Magazine Stiletto Run in Amsterdam. The rules are you must where heels at least 9cm for the 350 yard race. The winner takes home 10,000 euro. See video.
