This morning it started to rain just before I got started. It was really nice running with the temps in the upper 40s and not much wind. The only problem was that instead of turning back at 4.5 miles to make it a 9 mile run I was feeling good and went out an extra mile. I was running on a dirt road up by the reservoir and in the time the extra mile out took, the rain had soaked up the ground enough that right after I turned back the mud started to stick to the bottom of my shoes until they felt like they had tripled in weight. After a couple of miles like this the road got more of a sandy base and I scraped off the mud. It was great again after that. All in all it was a very enjoyable run. I didn't pay attention to pace along the way just enjoyed. Went 11 miles at 8:24 pace overall.

PM   Went 4 miles at just under 9:00 pace.
