I was able to sneak in an early morning run today while Brooke slept. I discovered a quiet frontage road off of I-44 today which allowed me to get most of my miles in with little traffic. Here’s my training tip of the day: don’t run on an interstate frontage road unless you’re ok with feeling extremely slow.
The morning here in Springfield was a little chilly with temperatures in the lower 30s. It was also very foggy out. One of my favorite moments of the run was coming over the crest of a hill seeing the sun trying to burn through the fog. It was just a little glow over the horizon. It was so faint at first that I thought it was the moon at first until I figured out my directions.
