Yesterday's post may not have been the most positive, but today was a good day, overall! I knew the weather was going to be nice; nicer than yesterday. So I had it set in mind that I was going to take advantage of that and run outdoors. As I sat in my last meeting of the day, I watched as the clock slowly clicked from 3:35 to 4:10 itching to get out of the building. As I was clearing off my desk and packing my bags to go home I quickly checked the weather:
44 degrees, FEELS LIKE 38 with a slight breeze. Perfect.
A part of me almost got a wild hair up my butt, thinking I would do my long run of 9.5 miles instead of just my normal quick loop. But, I was hungry and I didn't "prepare" for that kind of run so I brushed it off. Next time.
I must say, I truly love running in ND this time of year. The snow is melting, the puddles are everywhere, the snow banks that do remain are covered in sand from the winter giving the look as if Fargo was used it to wipe some big creature's ass, but the temps are almost perfect! I sit here typing this post with my patio door open and the sound of screaming kids outside. Won-der-ful!I am going to finish working the kinks out of my bracket here and head over to the site Jess put together for a blogland bracket! Come join if you are interested! Later... American Idol!
ORN: 2.45 miles
