11 miles at 8:20

The weather forecast called for rain all weekend. The forecast folks need their head examined. It was bright, sunny and hot outside all day. I was looking forward to running in the rain today but rain evaded Scottsdale. It did drizzle just a bit in the evening (after dark).

I ended up running for 11 miles on the treadmill at Lifetime Fitness. I started pretty slowly for the first 45 minutes but picked up my pace and ran briskly before slowing down for the last 5 minutes. My average pace was about 8:20 per mile.

Here is a picture of a Golden-cheeked Woodpecker (female) taken by Amiben. This bird was posing for us at close range showing off her beautiful eyes and plumage.
