<p>It was 55° here too Johnny....In my refrigerator!!</p>

<p>Actually I ran a little behind today and finally got out to run at 4 pm.  80° and the sun was beating down.  I was going to do a little in the state park and then do a road loop, but the shade felt much better.  I wore my garmin for the first time at the state park and was pretty surprised at the results.  The first surprise was how slow my pace was.  I ran 7:50 on the roads to get there and then ran 8:30, 8:21, 8:16, 8:56, and 8:38.  The last mile and a half in town was about 7:20 pace.</p>

<p>What was more surprising was the ascent and descent numbers.  The total for 7.5 mile was 2,132 feet!!  One mile alone (the 8:56) was over 500 feet gain and 400 feet loss.  If my math is correct, that would make the uphills about 18% incline.  I know some may even be steeper than that because years ago, they put wood in to make steps so it was easier to get up the hill for the hikers.</p>

<p>No doubt over the years I have probably overestimated the miles I ran there so I'll have to take a hundred off my lifetime total.<span><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;"></span></p>
