Long Run Before Soccer

Time: 100:22
Distance: 14.03 miles
Pace: 7:09

Meagan and I met up with Paul and Billy out at the Old Bell parking lot of McAlpine. The long run this morning was fun, but it was definitely overshadowed by the World Cup match between England and Germany.

Our run took us on all the familiar paths of McAlpine. Nothing too eventful happened while we were out there. It was sticky during the entire effort which made the thought of watching the WC and eating a proper English breakfast that much better. I was pretty keen to finish out my last 4 miles a bit quicker after dropping off Paul, Meagan and Billy at the parking lot. I cut the pace down a little and soon found myself paying the price with the increased heat.

The game was a fun one, though England didn't really show up. It was great watching with the three others on the run plus Jay, Aaron, Lauren and the rest of Paul's family.

Run splits:
7:57, 7:34, 7:27, 7:24, 7:35, 7:19, 7:30, 7:23, 7:11, 7:03, 6:31, 6:27, 6:21, 6:23
