- Elevation. Not a big surprise here, but the gently rolling hills of Greensboro challenged me.
- Cold. I thought maybe I could be faster in the cold. I certainly wanted to be faster in the cold to get back to a nice, hot shower more quickly, but my heart rate monitor told me no.

I'm definitely looking forward to getting back to flat, winter-less Florida tonight.
I am not sure when the last time I ran outside in near freezing temperatures was. My body pretty much shuts down if it's below 50 degrees. I set out this morning thinking I'd get 6 miles done today, but turned around after mile 2 because of numb fingers and toes.
So I'm not too disappointed in my run times today. I was running about the same pace just a few short weeks ago in moderate temps with no elevation. If I had to make a guess about why my last mile was the fastest, I would say it's because that's when my toes finally got some feeling back.
Some feeling... As I write this 3 hours after my run, I'm still trying to get warm. I see more coffee in my future.
Oh, there's some big athletic event happening today... I only care when my Giants are playing. Here's my favorite football moment ever.
69 days left.
