Yesterday, I wrote that I cut the run short because I didn't feel good and I want to be fresh enough to race this weekend. Today, I again held back but this time for the opposite reason, I felt so good that I didn't want to run too fast or too far. I could easily run at a good pace with no pain in the knees. I wish I could figure out the combination for this feeling so I can coincide it again with the Black Hills Race!
Saw an interesting wildflower out in the Badlands Loop today...a Large-flowered Beardtongue.
10 quick miles on the morning. Intend to hike yet this evening.
