Yay! I had a successful morning run! I was beginning to wonder if it was ever going to happen. And that was starting to worry me, since the race on Saturday (eek! this Saturday already?!) is in the morning. Thank goodness, I felt AWESOME on my run today. Well actually, it took me until about halfway through to really feel like I hit my stride, but at the end I was loving it. My last two minutes I was running really fast because I felt like I really had plenty left in the tank. It could not have been more different from my last run on Saturday morning. It was SO HOT that morning and for the last part of my run I was heading directly into the sun. I had to stop early and even walking the last part of it to get home was really draining. This time was a lot more cloudy and I adjusted my route to avoid to much "direct-sun" running. I also brought Adam's Camelbak with me.
Alright, I guess that's enough post-run gushing. I just wanted to capture this really positive attitude right now to remember the next time I have a bad day running. There IS a good reason to keep going.
