8 miles in 1h 37m in cold weather

Completed 8 miles in 1h37m in Liberty State Park today morning.

Started early - around 7:15 AM - to prepare for the 7:00 AM start in Philadelphia next week. It was cold and breezy! The temperatures must have been between 40 F and 45 F.

The first 3 miles almost were a big drag - warming up in the cold is a slow process! Also, without gloves, I could feel my hands getting frozen very quickly.

Will have to make sure I have a pair of gloves when I run next week. It will be mandatory to have gloves and a head band for the first couple of hours at least.
