Ran the same loop I ran with the cross country guys about two weeks ago this morning. Turns out I did it a minute slower per mile by myself than with the guys. It actually felt like I was pushing it too (7:31 compared with 6:38) for the 8 miles. If only I could meet up with some like minded individuals that enjoy getting up at 4am (?) and running in the darkness. Let me know if you're out there.
Got in 3 easy miles in the pm
