Successfully got up and out earlier. I downed a Gatorade before heading out the door at 5:30am. It was still dark, so I attached one of my strobe lights to my hydration pak. Hill after hill after hill. I was aided by the sun not reaching its peak, and small wind gusts here and there, so I didn’t get too hot. I also tried to take a swig of water after every other mile. When I was all done, I had completed 9.3 miles while keeping pace under 10′.
