Bobcat Loop

Time: 103:40
Distance: 16.32
Pace: 6:21

I enjoyed running on the hills yesterday so much that I thought I would venture out east again. This time I opted for Bobcat Loop that runs on some nice country roads. The Norman Conquest that I talked about yesterday also used these roads as I saw the arrows telling riders which way to turn. The pace of my run started pretty casually and then dropped consistently. The splits were: 7:41, 7:09, 6:45, 6:46, 6:33, 6:20, 6:11, 6:12, 6:02, 6:12, 6:10, 6:09, 6:00, 5:54, 5:52, 5:44.

The weather was great this morning as I stepped out the door a few ticks before 8:00 am. I was able to run without worrying about where to grab some water. I think the temps were in the upper 60s at the start and upper 70s at the end. What a difference a few degrees can make when you're out there for more than an hour.
