The run went well. No major difficulties, however, the ball of my foot hurts. I believe that this is because I was hitting a forefoot strike for most of the run, as opposed to a mid-foot landing. This is only on my left foot. I'm not sure of the exact reason that it only hurts there, but I think that as I am running, I am exhaling on that step. But I seem to be able to find a good rhythm during my run, and just sort of go on cruise control. Now to get on cruise control for 26.2 miles.
