Morning with lake and landfill

Been getting up early to run 10-12 miles. I'm in training for the North Shore Century -- only two weeks away now! Here was the view from the DuPage River Trail this morning, just after sunrise. That's Whalon Lake in Bolingbrook, looking north. The hill in the distance is the Greene Valley Landfill, which is what passes for terrain around here.

Getting kinda nervous about the century ride.My goal is to finish in some kind of reasonable time: I'm going to shoot for 7 hours, which comes out to an average of 15 mph. That seems to be my average speed on a long ride. Hope it's not too windy that day, or if there is, I hope it's from the north (tailwind on the return route).
