Today at lunch, as I walked to the MUSC Wellness Center to run on the treadmill (10 minute walk), I realized what a beautiful day it was outside, so I decided to run outside in Historic Downtown Charleston. This was much more exciting than the treadmill. There was a plethora of tourists out and about. It felt more of an obstacle course run more than anything. However, my first mile pace was around 7:15mm, then I tapered off a little on the last 3 miles, but still maintained an overall 8:24mm pace. Great run today.
I will be running 5 miles in the morning in the same area with my friend Tasha Ruth, the go do my scuba diving responsibilities at the SC Aquarium. Busy day ahead.
