12.5 miles in about 1:30 with a pretty fast group including Jake, Fritz, and Kevin. Lots of uphills through the U and Research Park. I'm not wiped out or anything, but I'm definitely tired. Need to think about how to get more consistency in my training.

A few more of these runs and I might be able to compete in the SLTC Winter Series races without embarassing myself.

Out to brunch now with Ann, Andy, and the running crew.

Nice run! Hope you have a good end to the break from work. Happy New Year.

That was super speedy!

Thanks Jeff and Cody. I don't dip under 7:30 pace too often these days so this was pretty hard. I need to run with other humans more often to give myself a little push.

Sad to miss out on the brunch. What are you worried about with consistency and racing? You're retired!
