Speed

OK...Craig Speed isn't quite as good as MikeSpeed. But I'll take it.

Today was not summer. It was more like a fall day. High temp around 65, but a bit humid. We went out to play disc golf. I haven't played in over a month. My buddy Nino and I have a running feud at the game. I've won the past couple times, but I guess it was his turn today. He was ahead most of the front nine, but I pulled to a tie at the 7th hole and was eventually ahead by one stroke. But he took the lead back on the 16th. I'll get him next time.

Went for a run tonight. The goal was a strong 5k and I did better than expected... 24:37. This was my second best 5k ever (my best was in a race). I was not expecting to do quite that well. Mile 1 was about 7:50. 8:10 for mile 2 -- which has the big hill. Finished with 7:56 total pace. Next run will be a five miler, most likely on Tuesday. The Akron Marathon relay is fast approaching and I am not ready. Need to keep on task to not let my team down.
