I composed a big long blog entry on paper during an all day management meeting but of course, I didn't bring that paper home with me. Then my boss emailed me in response to my email, so I put my phone to voice mail real quick because I knew he would call me as I was trying to slink out the door to go run!!!
The running gods were smiling on me. I parked about a 1/2 mile from my hill, which goes up for 1/2 mile, ran over to the hill, and went up and over it twice, for a total of 4 miles. The thunderstorm was moving in, so I was moving rather quickly on the last uphill, and saw my pace on the last downhill was under a 9 minute mile!! The rain struck as I got into my vehicle. (I was just happy to be away from the lightning...)
I wore my trail gaiters, first time, as an experiment. I knew the road I was running was loose gravel and rocks. They seemed to keep the pebbles out of my shoes. I think I got them on correctly. They felt a little heavy and strange at first, but then I was concentrating on running uphill so really didn't pay them too much attention. I saw alot of runners at Mohican who had cool Dirty Girl Gaiters on so I think I want a pair of those!!
Maybe I will remember the rest of my post from work later. Most of it involved things I want to buy for running. Maybe I can finish composing that at work tomorrow!
