The weather's been so good, I set my alarm for my usual AM time (6:25am), and eventually dragged myself out of bed and into my running shoes. SO glad I did. I set my sights on 6 miles, since that's further than I've been doing, and I knew I'd be able to handle the mileage in this weather. Completely zenned out, and managed to pull off 7 miles! I was set for a 9'00" average pace, but my right knee started flaring up. 😐 It's the pain I first got when I started running, and it seems like it returns every Phoenix fall now. For all the weights and such I've been doing, I just really need to focus on strength training my inner and outer thighs, to help balance their pull on my kneecap. It's gonna be a struggle to keep me in the gym when it's THIS gorgeous outside. 😎 Happy 1st Saturday of Fall, friends!

All in all, it was a 7-mile run, at a 9'00" average pace, zenning out with the low-rising sun, gentle temperatures, and good music. There are SO many people just out exploring and climbing and BEing and DOing. I'm sure we'll get another heatwave or two, the last of summer trying to hold on for dear life, but for now, I am completely content with fall. Feeling a few of the familiar aches and pains as my body adjusts itself back into shape, but my pace is settling in, at least.

When your live in Phoenix, your alarm goes off at your normal time (6:25am), and you see a temperature of 67Β°, you get up and GO. It actually felt *cold* on my way to the car this morning, but sweet baby Jesus, this first Saturday of fall is absolutely *gorgeous*!!!
