Today I got out at 6:50 a.m., not as early as I would like but early enough. The weather was pretty cool and there was a good amount of anti-Kryll effect (daylight instead of darkness) still.
I didn't have my first sip of Gatorade until after all three Middlebear hills, at the 5.22 mile mark on North Highland by Fritti, by the time I'd nearly finished the entire route. I drank the rest of the 12-ounce bottle at North Highland and Freedom Parkway, waiting for the light.
I guess I've been ready for the Peachtree for a while but I really felt extremely good today, on the attack on all 9 hills of the route.
Temp: 73 degrees
