Today is gorgeous here. It’s currently in the mid-70s and breezy, which is virtually unheard of in Virginia in mid-July. I dropped the kids off at camp this morning and headed out for a nice, slow 8 mile run. Two of my favorite bloggers have recently gotten certified for coaching running and they both are endorsing the really slow long run. I’m not very good at staying slow, but I decided that today I’d do my best to stay near a 10 minute mile and see what happened.
