Best mile and a half in a while

So today’s run was one of the most worthwhile I’ve had in a long while: 1.5 miles in 13:38. Yep, somewhere north of 9 minute miles, not quite long enough to break a sweat, and I was happy as a clam.

Saturday was Naval Reserve Physical Readiness Test. I wasn’t eligible to take it this month, since I’d been out of town last month (don’t ask – it’s a silly regulation). But the rest of the unit was running, so I volunteered to pace a couple of guys who aren’t runners. Everyone passed, most by a margin of greater than 30 seconds.

All thanks to the wonder that is the Forerunner.
