AM - just 3 miles this morning with Riley and Finn before church.  Really wanted to do a second run today, but also want to have a decent race in the Peachtree on Tuesday, and so want to be rested - so decided against a second run and will go short again tomorrow.

Peachtree Road Race today really fun as my whole family participated with my wife and two of my daughters walking/jogging and with Riley and I running.  

My "A goal" was high 42 mins to mid 43; my "B goal" if the temps and humidity was bad was to try to keep it under 45 mins.  So with a "red flag" warning out today - I was ok with hitting my B goal today.  

I got placed in the B wave and was quite frustrated for nearly the while first mile trying to find space to get on pace.  Splits were 7:14, 6:39, 6:29, 7:30, 7:27, 7:21.  The second half of the rest is primarily a series of uphills.

Ran nearly 3 mins faster than last year.  I can live with the result today.  Felt relatively fine afterwards and feel good about my fitness trending better each month since the spring. Marathon in the fall.

PM - 8.5 miles outside at lunchtime.  Too hot and I ended up on a course that was extremely hilly.  Struggled through.
