Slow long run
Saturday, February 16, 2013      3 comments

It was my first real run after my cold and in some ways it would have been better for it not to be a long run since I did not have any runs since my last long run of 8 miles. But the weather was sunny and fairly warm , 50 degrees, so I decided t... Read more
