dekalb/decatur loop. i started this run at 10:30am and it took me 2:57 (8:51 pace, haa). it was humid and steamy as usual, but i don&#39;t think it would have made a difference if i had done this at 5:00am or high noon. sometimes the early mornings are actually worse. summer is just not the ideal time to run here.</p> Thu, 22 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Wed, Jun 21, 2017 http://allie.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-21-2017.html <p>9 in the early morning.&nbsp;i was scared of possums</p> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 06:00:00 Tue, Jun 20, 2017 http://allie.fastrunningblog.com/blog-06-20-2017.html <p>pm -
