Boy am I glad we had the bad weather today, and not last Sunday, for the PDR. It would have sucked to run that 1/2 marathon in sticky, rainy/misty, humid weather.
I got out of the house around 8:30am, and had to run a 7 miler. It wasn't really raining at the time, just that kinda misty crap.
Today's goal was to just run a nice comfortable pace. Try and stay around the 9min/mile pace.
I ran a different course to Mercer County Park, just to break things up a bit.
By the time I hit the park, at about the 2+ mile mark, the mist turned into rain, and lasted for about 15 mins or so. It stopped for a bit, and picked up big time, for my last 2 miles.
There where a few runners out and about, and I have one complaint/question!
Here goes... WHY THE HELL DO PEOPLE WEAR COLOGNE/PERFUME TO RUN ?
I got stuck in the back draft of some 20something guy, who had bad nightclub cologne on,and later on, an older guy, say in his early 50's with your father's bad cologne on. It sucks to get a nose full of that crap, all that before 9:00am, and in the rain to boot!
This is going to be an easy week, until next Sunday.
Here is my schedule:
1:04:19 9:10min/mile avg.
I also should mention, that Saturday, I did nice easy 4.15 mile run in 38:21 a 9:14 min/mile pace.
And lastly, my condolences go out to BEACHRUNNER411..
