I feel like I have a lot to say and not much to say all at the same time! Not a common feeling for me...the "not much to say" part! Maybe it's the time of year, maybe that at 6 pm tonight it was pitch black outside, maybe it's my lack of vitamin D...no, I have been taking that. Who knows, but either way I wanted to say HELLO to those of you who are out there.
I went on 2 runs this week and it was A-MAZING. It felt so good to get out and run! Fall days here are absolutely beautiful! That is when the suns out. The clear, crisp air and the beautiful leaves filling the sidewalks make it so much fun to run. Running with friends has been great on days like these. I got to run a race a few weeks ago called, the BLACK Cat Fun Run. It was in a beautiful park that is 5 miles long and we ran it in the dark...well more like dusk, but it was fun. Diana and I with a few friends ran it and we were tutu's...so cute and a lot of fun. Next race will be Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving Day and I am excited to finally get to do this. I have always wanted to do it, but it never worked out with the days festivities. Plus Max is registered for the kid run....can't wait.
Before I forget...I am 25 miles away from my goal of 1,000 for the year. Though my wiget says 1,000...do not be fooled, that has some biking and a couple other things included. I want to get 1,000 miles of just running. It would be great if I could get those 25 in this week, but with my last few weeks for running 2 days a week...probably not going to happen. But I think, 2 weeks...we can get'er done! What do you think?
I'm also really excited that there is a running club starting in my neighborhood and I am thrilled. So excited! I will be getting involved in that. We did a training run last Saturday morning and it was a blast. I have never run with a running group before and it was great to meet new running friends who live in my HOOD! Looking forward to see how that evolves.
So what's up next:
- Running Club
- Turkey Trot
- Santa Run
P.S. Wasn't the New York Marathon great? I got to watch it and find it funny that watching running can be so interesting. The elites...they are amazing to watch. They cover the same ground that I do...in the half the time! Talented!
