How did I do it? So it's 2 weeks after SGM, and I headed out for an easy 3 mile run. Within the first quarter mile, the first thought in my mind was - how did I do it? I am truly still in shock. How did I run 26.2 miles in 3:49? Yep, still excited about it. As for the run, thankfully uneventful. I ran easy, it was not hard, it was not totally easy, but I am so glad to be back on the roads. For me, it's like "going home" - a great feeling!
When I turned on my Garmin today, this is what I saw.
Ran the tangents great this time - @ Houston 1-09, I ran 26.5 - zoned out I guess.
Today was a great day to go out for a run. We finally have some cool weather in South MS. As I ran from my house, it was a strange feeling. I haven't run since St. George, and wasn't running much the week prior to leaving, so today when I ran with the cool breeze it was like running in the new season. Last time I ran here, it was summer, and now it seems to be fall (although in South MS we are never far from warm temps). That is what I truly love about this area, we do have at least 2 seasons, and sometimes we have 4 seasons. Yesterday, as I was mowing the grass and freezing, I wondered if we have skipped fall, but today as I was running, it was great. I'm a happy camper!
Do you see that Scarlett is sticking her tongue out at the photographer?
