Eight Hundred Fifty-Five

September 7, 2018
7.15 Miles in 1:11:50
Mood: Moving fast, and then forgetting to pause an app.
Soundtrack: Lupe Fiasco "Lasers" and "Lupe Fiasco's Food and Liquor"

This was actually a really fast run (by my standards), but my numbers look terrible because I took a five minute phone call from my wife and didn't pause my run as I walked slowly while talking. My average pace went from 9:25 minute miles to a 10:00 mile pace thanks to that lack of pausing the app. Oh well, the exercise was still just as effective, which I guess is more the point anyway.

The quick pace was due to a significant motivating brother. He is in town this weekend, and I tried to get my run in quicker than usual so that I could get to work a little early, so that I could get off earlier to see him. That motivation may be meaningless, as I will likely not see him until late this evening at this point, but it did inspire a rather quick run this morning.

Also, the cool September weather was almost chilly today, with temps hanging out in the 50's the whole time I ran. It is a glorious temperature, but also a reminder that cold days lie ahead in the not too distant future. I also was a little sleepy this morning, as I stayed up to watch the Eagles vs the Falcons in the NFL Opening Night game which was actually kind of an ugly game, but I'm happy football is back even if the first game was a bit of a dud.
