AM- Cooler 8.25 Miles through shullgate around big block. Suprisingly my legs felt 'OK' which I of course was happy about. 

PM- Sunny and nice, but warm. 6 easy. Some punk kids wanted to race me. I kept my pace slow and they gave up quick enough. Amazing how fast they are for 50 meters and then give up. :p

That’s funny about the kids racing you. This morning some younger runner passd me. I could tell he was pushing harder than he should just so he could pass me. I was so tempted to pick up my pace and ran by him but I was at mile 4 of my long run and decided that wouldn’t be wise.
