Indian Summer Run
When I woke up this morning, 5 days later, it was 59 degrees out! I ran in shorts and had no use for my stocking cap. I wore my long sleeve compression shirt, but was actually hot with it on!
Weather in central Illinois can change frequently, but such a dramatic change was disorienting. However, I had a great run! There was a slight breeze out of the south which made the trip out a little cooler and more difficult. But as I turned around, I had the wind at my back and a couple of times I felt like I was really flying. Overall, my time was better than I had expected, 5 miles in 36:30, and certainly better than I had been doing.
It was great weather for running and I was very appreciative for the mild temps! It may be awhile before I can run in weather so nice.
