A great day for a run

It was really beautiful this morning on my run.  The temperature was in the high 50s when I was leaving my apartment, and the humidity was low.  A really great day to go for a run.

So that’s what I did.  My legs were still sore in a few places, but I honestly tried not to think about it much.

Instead, I concentrated on how nice it was out and (finally!) managed to take a few grainy pictures with my phone.

Nice views, right?  I remembered this morning that the simple act of going for a run can be really great.  Not a training run with a specific time or distance goal, but just a simple run. Sometimes I get so focused on my pace or my time that I forget to look around and actually enjoy it.

But of course, I did still wear my Garmin today.  I covered about 5.5 miles, with an average pace of 9:11.

Even though I was still sore, I was able to push through, so I think I am going to bounce back just fine.  And I’m actually glad that I was able to take a step back and remind myself to look around a bit more.  Turns out, there is some pretty great stuff to be seen.

  1. It is important to step back and enjoy the view now and again. I am sure you will work all the kinks out in your next couple runs! Call me from the airports on your trip tomorrow. Love you lots!
