Ran with Amelia around 11:30. We ran along the creek trail and then west through the park to the Alpine Highway, north to Kohlers and then home. Amelia did quite well, except for getting a little overheated about half way through.

Lunchtime run by myself as the girls had a dentist appointment. Broke in a new pair of Cumulus 12's. I didn't bother to re-lace them for my high arches before heading out so I think my blood circulation was a little constricted. In any case, my feet got extremely hot. I know the surface wasn't that hot as it was still wet in places from this morning's rain. After about three miles, I had to stop and unlace them (almost to the point where they were falling off my feet). That seemed to help and I was able to continue my run without problem (except for a little abdominal discomfort).

Highland Glen loop with a a run up the hill. I took it easy for the most part as I'd pushed it much harder yesterday. Yesterday, I wasn't able to get my Garmin to lock in on the satellites so I don't really know what my pace was (except for the first mile warm-up: 8:20), but it was working fine today. A little breezy, but it felt pretty good.

Ran 5.75 in the early morning with Laureen (canal road and upper trail) and 6.25 with Amelia a little later (creek trail, Highland Glen and Kohler's loop).
