A wee little run

On Saturday evening Mary and I decided to run the 3 mile loop.  When you consider the 0.1 miles from our mailbox to the begining of the loop the distance ends up being 3.2 miles.  It was around 8:30 in the evening.  It was a very hot and fairly humid day.  By the time we got out to run it was pretty comfortable in the mid to upper 70s.  We set out together to enjoy a nice simple run.  We stayed together for the first mile.  After the first mile I started to pull a head a little bit.  Mary wanted to try to keep up with me and I wanted to take it easy.  It worked out well for both of us.  When I arrived back at the mailbox it had been 29:30 – just over a 9 minute mile.  Mary arrived only 30 seconds later.  Considering that this was a “rest” run I was surprised at the time.
