Downhill long run

I got talked into doing an early, mostly downhill car-shuttle long run this morning by my friend Chris. We met at our gym at 5AM, drove one car out to his house (about 12 miles out of town) and ran back to the gym. Usually he's much faster than me, but I was able to keep up on a long, slow run - although our pace was just a bit quicker than I would've gone had I been alone. Probably good for me to push a little, anyway... At the gym, we did some stretching and core stuff, then I shuttled him back to his house and came home to make coffee for my wife. It was a pretty soggy morning, but it only rained on us a little in the last mile. The sides of the road were a little muddy, though, and stuck to the soles of our shoes a bit.


Aside from a little slowdown around the 30:00 mark, where Chris had to take a pee break, we held a pretty good pace throughout...

Well, I was just stopping in! I didn't know you were late! Of COURSE you slept in late. Good that you get any sleep at all.
