The crazy weather continues for what is marathon/half-marathon weekend in Tucson, Arizona. The temperature was above 60 degrees at 5:15 this morning when I started my run, and I spent the 14 miles running through drops, showers and a fine mist. It felt like I was back in Portland, Oregon, where I spent precisely 1.5 winters before I nearly went mad from the rain. Folks coming to town for the race expecting cool temperatures and sunny skies might be a bit disappointed, but we definitely need the water.
As for me, the legs seem to be getting some snap back after going into hibernation for two days after the 1000's on Tuesday. As for the lungs, I'm feeling like a diesel engine: I can go, go, go for a long time, but I'm a bit noisy and slow.
Training: 14 miles, 1h 37m, 6:59 pace
