Because it's fast Sunday this weekend, I decided to go long this morning to give my body a day to recover before starting my fast.  I started a tempo at mile 4 and ran a half marathon in about 1:20 (maybe a bit under).  I forgot to charge my Garmin last night and it died partway through my run, so I don't know the exact time, but I knew the mile markers along the way (Minuteman Trail - out and back) and was able to turn the Garmin back on for a minute at the end of the tempo to see the time of day.

PM - Treadmill run in the evening.  The last two nights have been rough with the kiddos and I've been feeling the onset of an illness (sore throat + congestion).  Although, I felt slightly better after the run.
