A midsummer gift

Distance: 6.5 mi

Miles To go: 1656

I guess I cashed in my karma points today.  Somebody must have heard all of the cheering and urging on I did at the race this morning and decided to give me a reward.  Because in the middle of July, in the middle of America, on a day that should have been well into the 90s and miserably muggy… I got a gift.  A front passed through this afternoon and gave us a little ran and, more importantly, dropped the temperature to a luxuriously comfortable 67 degrees.  It was yummy.  I had planned on running just over 5 miles but it felt so good I added another mile and a quarter because I know how lucky I was.  I doubt seriously it will be this cool again for another 2-3 months.  So to whoever was watching today and decided to be kind to a fat, old man… thanks.  It was wonderful.
