Happy Sunday! I am sorry for the late post. I was hanging out with hubby last night and then went to bed early so I didn’t schedule my post at night per usual.
Yesterday Bobby and I had a really good run with Team in Training. We woke up at the awful hour of 4:30 to be at the run for 5:30. Getting up was hard, but I am so glad we did. While it was still very humid, temps were in the mid 70’s and it was dark, and it made the run so much more enjoyable!
We had 10 miles to go, and honestly they flew by. We ran somewhere we had never gone before, so I think that made the time go by quickly. I didn’t really push at all until the last couple miles because the sun was coming up. We finished in 1:47, which made me realize if I would have kept going at that pace and run 13.1 miles, I would have PR’ed! and I wasn’t even “racing” or trying hard. That was seriously the confidence booster I REALLY needed! After running at 9:00 every morning in the oppressive heat and sun, I was starting to think I had actually gotten SLOWER! I actually do this every year…you would think I would have learned by now that when fall hits my life gets easier!
I didn’t take any pictures because I am lazy, but wore preppy pink argyle athletic skirt, and there were two other girls there in running skirts, I think I am slowly converting people!
Anyway, don’t you just love it when you have a great run after a lot of a bunch of not so great ones? Sometimes, they are so few and far between that I forget what a truly good run feels like. Well, it felt GREAT! Only negative is my IT band is slightly sore today. Boo! back to foam rolling…
I also wanted to mention a fun blogger meet up I had the day before I went to Philly for HLS, Rach was coming through town, and we decided to meet up for coffee at Starbucks. I am so glad we met up, they are super sweet, and we have SO much in common! They are going through some of the same things we are in life so it was nice to have someone to sympathize with! I hope they come back down again so we can hang out again!
