The Morning Run
This was a "short" at the Running Film Festival last year. The video reminds me of running on Saturday mornings with the GRC. My morning starts with a steaming cup of coffee before I, along with the group, run through a cornucopia of different settings. The 3 minute movie is definitely worth watching and has a good ending.

My legs felt pretty rocked during my Friday run and again this morning during the group run. I tried to keep my pace relaxed in lieu of the looming 20 miler set for Sunday. I got 2 new pairs of shoes this morning. My shins started to feel achy and when I checked my mileage I was at just about 700 miles, or 350 per shoe. This is traditionally the amount I can run before I need a knew pair. Plus with all the rain and mud we've had this spring, I am sure the shoes took an extra beating.
