08/14/10 (6.02 mi, 10:13 pace)

We were in North Platte, NE this weekend for a wine barrel smoker competition at a local winery. All the participants were given a used wine barrel, and were to show back up this weekend having transformed it into smoker.

We had a blast!!!!

I got up early Saturday morning, before the rest of the house, so I could still get my run in before we had to load up all our competition gear and head out.

I put on my normal running clothes and shoes, walked outside, and stopped in my tracks.

Not only is it beautiful running around a lake when the sun is rising.....but the temperature was crazy!!! I've been running in 80 degree weather (at 5 am) and 70-90% humidity levels for a couple weeks now. I don't know what the actual temp was Sat am....but it couldn't have been any warmer than the lower 60's. Brrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!

I loved it!!!!!

Took three small walk more than 30 seconds for each one, at the most.

6 miles, three tiny walk breaks!!!!!!

I was hoping that my pace would be better, but I'm still not complaining!!!!!!
