Overcast morning.  Temps in upper 60's and windy.  It rained off and on as well.

I ran 10.08 miles out to the PWC and back.  I was pretty wet when I finished.

I left earlier than normal this morning to actually run with somebody else.  First time this year that I can recall not running alone.

I ran 1.5 miles to downtown Daybreak and met up with Rachel (RAD) and her dog Daisy (who loves to run btw!).  We ran her "Urban Trail" loop and got caught up since we haven't seen each other in several years.

It was great to have company and the time went by quickly.  She offered to take me on some runs in the hills and actually pointed them out.  They looked nasty...  But I think I'm going to taker her up on it!

It's nice to actually know somebody down here.  Thanks to Lowell for figuring out how close we were!

Total  11.02 miles.

It was 60 degrees when I started, 80 when I finished.

I ran my urban 20-mile loop down to ISU and then back through the Monte Vista and Satterfield hills and back home.

Total 20.02 miles.

First 70+ mile week in a long time!
