was going to go 15-16 today but I think I slept in just a touch too long and it got warmer than I expected, on top of that, I think I am just not great in the mornings in terms of long distance on empty stomach, regardless, got 13.3 in 1:38:59, 7:26 pace

Great to report a nice long run finally! It's been tough to get the longer runs in given the heat and humidity, but today I was able to get an afternoon run in and the dew point/humidity finally dropped. 16.5 miles in 1:57:18, 7:06 pace - most of my splits were within about 10 seconds and the last 2.5 I dropped it under 7 for my fastest miles of the run - a good sign with Boston 3 weeks out
