Finally, a long run!

I went for a real long run today for the first time in a long time. I've generally been limiting my runs to not much more than an hour (not counting mountain half marathons of course!). My side-hip-back-previously-injured-but-never-fully-understood area seemed to get irritated if I cranked up the miles too much. I missed the long run so this morning I headed out slow and easy for nearly 16 miles on the back roads of Merrimack and Amherst.

I learned 2 things this morning:
  1. My side is fine, even after 2+ hrs of running.
  2. When the dewpoint equals the air temperature you have 100% humidity. Who knew?
