A Quick Two

I ran a bit too fast today. But it was good knowing that I could do it. It felt so much better to be outside than on the dreadmill. Moisture wicking shirts certainly don't do any good indoors.

In any case, I ran my fastest mile to date today. I'm proud of myself because I really, REALLY didn't want to go out today. It's that special time all women know and hate. But I went out anyway because I know I won't be in the mood to make it up later in the week. Now that I've gotten that out of the way, I'm ready to start my day.

Music: Things Fall Apart by The Roots
I used to wear this album out. I'm so glad to have it back in rotation. I'm not a big hip hop fan, but I can appreciate really good hip hop. Too bad there's not enough of it to go around.

Congrats to you! Well done!

Are you usually a morning runner? I'd love to start doing that, but I have to be at work by 8am and I have a lot of trouble starting my morning that early. :(

Jeannie, I'm not usually a morning runner at all. I'm the type to lie around all day and get outside before it gets dark. But now with my day job interrupting my schedule, I try to get some morning runs in.

I hate when my job gets in the way of my life!

Anyway, congrats on completing a morning run and, well, just for getting back to running. I'm glad you're feeling well enough to run.
