This past weekend was a taper weekend. I only needed to run 6-7 miles. I would be running solo because Jenny is nursing an injury right now. I wasn't real excited about running by myself but knew I could get it done.

The temperature at start time was 66° and 91% humidity. Not too bad. When I started the sun was just beginning to rise.


I tried not to start out too fast. But when I'm by myself it's hard to slow down! I was enjoying the quiet and just hearing my feet hit the pavement.

And I took so many pictures of the sunrise because it was just so beautiful!


The first few miles flew by! My legs were feeling strong. And I was in my groove.


I made a turn and saw another beautiful view of the sunrise. So of course I took another picture!


Then I headed to run in a neighborhood that I haven't run in in awhile. It was still early so the neighborhood was fairly quiet. I was still feeling great and had made it over halfway! And here's the sunrise view from the neighborhood! The sun was finally peeking through!


I finished up the run really strong! I'm proud of my pace for a 7 mile solo run!


And the best part was running in daylight! During the week it is dark during my runs since I have to run so early. So I love being able to run in daylight on the weekends!


This weekend I have 12 miles on the schedule. Then the next weekend is a taper run. And then the next weekend is my half marathon! I can't believe it's so close! I LOVE race season!!!

QOTD: Do you prefer to run in the dark or in daylight? Are you a morning runner or night runner?
