3/23/2008 Happy Eostre/Vernal Equinox

Well, it's a typical Easter day in West Texas. I don't know how it does it but yesterday it was 70 degrees and gorgeous and today it is 44 degrees with clouds and mist. So stupid but very typical. It does it every Easter. So I have figured out that someone must have mixed up their holidays. I figure what really happened is Jesus awoke, rolled the stone away.............and saw his shadow, so there's going to be 6 more weeks of winter!

As for my run today, Aubrey came over and we ran a 5.02 mile out and back on 1585. My hip didn't hurt at all so I am thrilled. I even ran about a half mile of it at a 6:40 pace and felt fine. I can't imagine sustaining that kind of pace over a long run though. People that can do that are freaking amazing. I am perfectly happy with my 8:30 pace on most training runs and a lot slower than that in an ultra.
