Wow my legs are so tight, stretching feels good! I wonder if people think I am nuts for being out here in the wind and rain? From the looks on the smokers under the over sized umbrellas faces, I would say Yes. Oh well, I need to get my run in, and I know I wont regret it. Mother Nature wanted to water her flowers today, wow is it wet out.
I still cant believe how big this jacket is, I remember when it was snug on my belly. Truly never believed I would get rid of that belly. The plant wood bridge may be slippery, careful, nope it is OK. The name of that business always makes me laugh Siemens, I wonder what they do? Which way should I go? I am getting bored with the same trails. There is the office again, 2 miles, not ready to stop, not even a third of the way there.
Into the wood, hmmmm maybe the woods is not smart during a wind storm. Mother Nature is trying to grab me using her trees. MUST RUN FASTER. I wore my Road ID anklet but I really do not want it to be used. FASTER!! Out of the Woods 6:55 pace, crazy. More smokers, UGH! I love the trails by my office around the ponds, I guess I could just do laps, Nah. Time to do some math, I am at 3.2 and I was to do 6 so out and back to...Ummmm? Whatever I will just turn at my normal spot.
Taco Bell YUMMY... there is a heavyset Woman in a small truck, I wonder what she is thinking? I feel really good, but wow this wind is INTENSE. Mother Nature is playing with my ponytail, I am getting blown everywhere. I wonder if the shorter runners feel less wind resistance? I doubt it, but today I feel every inch of my 6'0 frame.
What a relief the wind is to my back and less than 2 miles to go. I wonder what Mother Nature will have in store for me in the morning??
GUESSES on what Mother Nature has in store for my 21.2??
You will find out soon... Off to my 21.2 Long Run.
AKA LONG RUN DAY!!
