A nice 9 mile run around the park on a bright cold morning. Many runners out to take advantage of a beautiful day, wasn’t too cold after a few miles. The pace was around 8 minute miles after yesterday’s quicker pace. Could have gone farther but 9 miles felt perfect, so why push it? Will have plenty of time over the winter for higher mileage. Ran over a part of the Buffalo Marathon course on the way home – in fact, the course runs past my house – picturing that race or maybe Toronto, or Pittsburgh for a spring marathon. Will be marathon shopping over the next few weeks.
