8 miles tempo
9:02 avg pace
I wish I could bottle up how I felt during this run and take a sip whenever I need some encouragement. Even though it was cold and I ran through snow I felt amazing!
Miles 1 and 2 (easy): 9:22, 9:23
Miles 3 to 6 (tempo): 8:44, 8:44, 8:45, 8:44 (how’s that for consistency?!)
Miles 7 and 8 (easy): 9:18, 9:16

A view from my run…
Today was the first time I ran with my SPIbelt. I don’t like to bring much with me when I run but I should be taking my cell phone for safety reasons.
The SPIbelt is like a fanny pack for runners. It’s small but super stretchy. I put it on low – down by my hips – and it didn’t move an inch or bop up and down. I’m not fashion conscious when I run but it’s barely noticeable. I took the liberty of modeling it for you…
And Hawk approves of it!
I could definitely use a photography class. Sorry for the poor quality pics.
It’s supposed to snow which means quality time with the treadmill tomorrow. Boo.
