Wow...WOw...WOW!! My run yesterday was just WOW!!
I am waiting for my new Ipod cord to come and I thought my Ipod battery was DEAD...I turned it on and it worked.. so I quickly turned it off, changed and set out. It was a race to beat the battery. I planned for 7 miles at a little uncomfortable pace. I wore my Day-glow Orange Saucony Kinvara's and a cute little runner girl said "I like your shoes," as we passed..
-Old Man in studly running suit, barely moving, but making progress.
-Two ladies in black trench coats, very serious.
-Dude in shape up shoes, again, this time jammin to his I-Phone.
-Even older guy with a paper thin 1993 (I think) Seattle Marathon jacket.
-Medium height brown haired runner with a strong stride.
-Two sets of men walking in 3's.. "Hey Hey were the Monkeys"
-Ouch my right arch hurts
-I am dragging my left knee, need to get back to strength training ASAP
-Wow those 3 miles went by FAST
-Why can't I get a sub 8:00 mile?
-This is the shirt I wore when I found out my Dad died :(
-I love Capris
-My legs are muddy
-I bet most people don't get hit in the head with these Willow tree branches
-I should bring my rake and clippers and clean up this trail
-I wonder what the treadmill runners in the gym think staring down at me?
-It is windy
7 Miles and I zoomed to the finish. As I passed by the Security guard at the gate at my work he said "How was your run?" I said "Tough but done." And later as I drove through a different security guard asked how far I ran, I told him 7 miles and he seemed floored.. Then I told him I was training for Boston.. Nice to know they care :)
