I actually had salt stains on me after Sunday’s long run. It’s amazing how nice the 80s can feel when the air isn’t so humid. This week ended up being very similar to Week 2 last year. The weather was even a little better this year.

Great week of running! Ahhh... I'm so envious. The weather is getting cooler and I'm inside cross training. I've canceled my January marathon because of my injury, but I will be cheering you on. What is your time goal?
