How did I feel? Good even though I was a little tired. This was my first run back home in two weeks. It’s nice to be back and run in familiar territory. The past two weeks I’ve been running in flat areas. Pasadena has some good hill climbs so it was nice to run hills again and build leg strength. The temperature was warm so I made sure to wear my camelbak so I could drink water. I also took it easy due to the warm weather so I wouldn’t get fatigued quickly.
