This weekend while the family was all in Virginia soaking up the warmer weather I got to check out the neighborhood a little more during my run. You might remember that I did not like the lack of shoulders on the roads in VA.
Quite often the roads are lined with a ditch. Not too runner friendly. In fact I don't think it would be very tire friendly either if you had to get over for a road hog while driving.
But back to my point. The run was feeling hard from the start but I set out to do 8 miles so I kept running trying to make that switch from treadmill to road and trail.
The miles ticked away and I was finally feeling comfortable with my pace and stride
and then I started finding these.
Now it's not for everyone to carry four porcelain dishes, one cup and a stoneware serving tray the last two miles of their run but for me I think it added a little extra upper body work to the run.
Day # 219 ~ 3.5...so far
Now back in PA and on the treadmill as we are having another winter storm, I think our family is going to do a litter pick up along our road in VA next weekend.
Sunday Hubbs, LBM and I went back out for a walk while S'ghetti girl was playing with a friend the trash along the road is terrible! But we did enjoy getting out in the drizzle and gathering the rest of the dishes that I believe had be thrown at trees and utility poles by teenagers. (I hope they didn't steal them but I think they probably did)
We found 2 dinner plates, 5 desert plates, 4 cups, a large stoneware serving plate and 2 porcelain tea pots. S'ghetti girl is already planning her next tea party.
