running is so weird, so unpredictable. i ran easy this morning and my pace was almost a minute per mile faster than yesterday. my recovery pace is getting faster and faster. i can run 8'42", the pace i need to beat the skinny kid in the 10K, with no problems at all. i don't know if i'll ever get over the craziness that is running.
i felt pretty good for most of this morning's run around the northside of town. there was a moment or two of uneasiness in my throat, but it went away almost as soon as it started. i just kept my head up, my back straight, my arms swinging easy and my legs following one after the other. i moved my body more than two miles. two months ago i could barely run four or five blocks. wow! double wow!
