This morning I was so ready to run. The weather was wonderful, the sun was shining over the ridge line, the birds were singing, the air was still. Perfect conditions to lose myself in a speedy morning run.
After yesterday's "grown up" activites, closing on the VA house, moving a few things, driving all over; you know just generally being responsible instead of just having fun on a day off of work! I was eager to be a kid again and forgot that I wasn't one for thirty minutes. Which turned out to be on 26:45 because I was so rested and happy to be running that I ran very quickly! Had I realized I was going so fast I might have slowed down just to make it last longer!
I will take an easy 6.5 mile run tonight since I have the Catch Me If You Can 10 miler Saturday. The plan for this race is to just enjoy the run. With everything that was going on this week, I have no intention of racing it. If I can supress the urge!
Good Luck to all the other racers this weekend!
