8.20 miles in 1:16:22
it was beautiful out this morning. cool, crisp, windless! perfect for running a long, lazy run. thankfully, that's what hal told me to do today. run 75 minutes! i ran down to the rudolph run route and did a two full loops around it with a couple of slight variations in the second loop. a few of the christmas light displays were up and lit so i got a small taste of what the race will be like on december 3. it's going to be great! soon after i entered the park the second time around, i spotted a young buck running through the park. he stopped to stare at me a couple of times and then ran off. couldn't help but wonder if it was rudolph himself, though i didn't ever see the red glow. maybe it was a cousin.
