5 mile easy run (38:28)

I got in an easy 5 miles this morning. The temperatures have been perfect for the last week, and NO WIND! You have to take advantage of these days around here. 5 miles took 38:28 this morning for an average pace of 7:41. I tend to increase speed on these short easy runs because it is up hill slightly on the way out and down hill on the way back, plus there is the warm up factor. I think my last mile was around 7:00. 4 days to race day!

The Nike Women's Marathon was this weekend in San Fransisco, and the woman with the fastest time DID NOT win the race, go figure that one out. Race officials can sure be morons. Read about her here.
