Today's run

Got outside at 8 a.m. and ran to the foot of the Aquatic Park pier and back. Pier now has a sign requesting community input for closing it altogether from dusk to dawn, since it's in such bad shape. I didn't memorize the web site address.

Sunny, cool morning; wore a T-shirt and long pants, and my new "all-weather" Newton shoes. They definitely don't fit as well as the previous pair, feeling looser and allowing more side-to-side motion. Though this is the first time I've run in them, my previous pair fit perfectly from the start. Anyway, I think they will be fine; I'll just get some thicker socks. My feet will likely swell on longer runs anyway.

Didn't get stuck at many lights, but took six minutes to walk up the steepest part of the hill. Finished the 2.5 mile run in 37'44" for a slow slow 14.9 minute/mile pace.
