Today was chilly, but I took Koda out for a short 3.3 mile loop and thought I was making good time whenever I heard the voice on RunKeeper tell me my pace was under 9 minutes a mile. Really, it was like 8:54. I thought I was doing pretty well until I got home and checked my stats from the half-marathon I ran in 2012. That entire 13.1 mile race I had an average speed of 8:26. There is no way I can keep a pace like that right now, so I’ll have to get back to running hard.
