I started later than I would have liked, left my house just after 10:00. I took out two water bottles, but left one on my front porch. My plan was to run an out and back in one direction, switch out the empty water bottle, then run and out and back in a different direction for a grand total of eleven miles. Temperature was in the 40's, sunny. with a nice crisp breeze. For a bit I wore a heandband over my ears but ditched it as I warmed up.
My plan went off without a hitch aside from one or two nitpicks. My goals was to run about a 13:30 to 13:50 mile. Aside from the times where I ended up waiting at busy intersections that's exactly what I did.
One of the ways I planned my run was to pick neighborhoods I don't normally run it, at least for the first part. I found a cute park I figured the boys would love so after my run I loaded them in the car and we played for a while.
