9.5 Miles in Sweltering Summer Steam

Was it 9 miles? Or 10? Either way, I'm saying 9.5. 1:39:37 total.

Wind: SE at 5 mph
Humidity: 90%
course: Illinois Prairie Path

Wind: N at 6 mph
Humidity: 74%

Ran from the Zero spot to where the IPP meets the Great Western Trail. Took 48:## to get there, roughly 51:## to return. Got caught waiting a few minutes at Geneva on the return trip. Mostly hovered around 10:00/mile pace. Bit slower on the way back, save the accidental fartlek when a bug decided to introduce himself (several times, and we weren't getting well).

Lonely world out there today. A few walkers, a few bikers. Was it the humidity, time of day, weekday?

Dead and dying cicadas, black flies, dragonflies, and a huge spider found their way where I was.
