Last night's 2.25 mile run with the Palouse Falls Beer Chasers was nice. I jogged in the rain, and the cool breeze felt glorious on my hot face as I pushed my legs down the asphalt path and around the softball fields. My first mile showed some improvement - a 9:51 pace. I was really happy about that since it was nearly a minute faster than Monday's pace. I don't expect this rate of improvement to last for long (obviously), but it sure is nice to feel like my body is already reacting to my attempts to get back into shape.
Another piece of good news is that I just signed up for my second half-marathon - The Rock 'n' Roll Half in Seattle, WA on June 25, 2011. With Bloomsday coming up in May (7.46 miles), my training should be right on track for a half marathon in late June. Yay!
