AM - very early start to get out before the heat.  Planned to meet my friend Ken with the group who meets in downtown Clearwater to run over the beach bridges.  Ken is just starting his training for the Vegas marathon in December, so he was not up for a really long run.  As a result I went down early and ran for an hour before he and group arrived at 6 am.  We started with a plan to run a bit longer, but Ken was not feeling his best, and though I would have been tempted to do 20 total, we only did an hour together - so 2 hours total for me and just under 16 miles.  Ready for a rest day as was feeling a bit fatigued at the end myself.

Just a suggestion.
