The first 1.75 was comfortable and easy. And then we got into the sun. Excellent reminder of how insanely hot Georgia summers can be and how I really need to wear sunscreen more often. It got a little tough for a bit, but when the 3mi marker hit, we were back in the shade and things got pretty nice to coast through our last mile.

This is our last run before Peachtree on Monday. It felt a little reassuring to know that we can survive in the heat and that our marathon is in the fall. It's also nice to know that we are hitting the road again and that training is almost officially underway.
Our time for the run was 48:32. Our goal time is about 12:00mi so I think we are on our way to acclimate and get the running dust shaken off. For Peachtree we aren't planning on a time goal for the simple fact that there are 60,000 people on the course and I don't want to lose my mind trying to keep us on our pace. Plus, its a 6mi party. We want to have fun.
