On my way home, I picked up my race packet for the Bluegrass 10k this Thursday. Now I'm all set!

Running Cadence and Bearded Brothers Bars
Woke up late this morning. Not quite sure what happened with my alarm... Anyway, 4 miles turned into 3 and I figured I should speed it up a little. I downloaded a free iTunes Running Cadence app and tested it out this morning. My average pace is about 11:15/mile. I'd really like to get that down to 10:00/mile. The app has the option of setting the beat from 85-120 beats per minute. I set it at 85 just to see where that would put me. Following that cadence my first mile was 10:27/mile! The next two miles I shut it off and ran them easy. I finished my run about 2 minutes faster than usual.
