I went to Glen Rose Sunday and was able to run up there on Monday and Tuesday. I started Monday's run just before 8AM and it was heating up fast. The Glen Rose High School had 85°F to 88°F and that was about the same temperature recorded up at the Granbury Airport. But the dewpoint was way down in the lower 60s and a recovery run at 8:10 pace felt nice and easy. Tuesday morning I got out a little earlier and was able to run in 81°F conditions at 7AM with no dew or fog anywhere! Even though the high temperatures both days were around 105°F, running was much easier.

Here are couple of pictures from the courthouse square in Glen Rose:
