This morning I caught up on my favorite podcast- Wait wait, don’t tell me!
You should probably go listen now…. because it’s awesome sauce...as most things on NPR are…
I finally got my butt in gear after the show ended and prepared for the 12 miles ahead of me!
BEFORE: Smile on my face and unaware of the cold and windy run I was about to embark on. ANNNND reppin my cuse pride 🙂
AFTER: VERY COLD (only 23 “feels like 14” out) Wind was AWFUL. My grandma hips were really feeling it around mile 8 and I seriously contemplated only running 10 miles. Pushed through and ran through the “park” by the water and came across a black great dane!
Which looked like this guy-
Even though the dog had tags on him I seriously wanted to take him home with me 😦 I hope his owner was in the park somewhere. He was VERY friendly!
Anyways- finished the 12miles in 1 hour 38 minutes. I know this isn’t “slow” but it seriously felt very slow and sloppy for me today. I def think the lack of sleep and the fact my gas tanks on empty right now contributed to this poor run. I’m glad I finished it all and didn’t give up.
Annnnd my friend showed me this song today…seriously on repeat all dayyyy. Happy Sunday all!
Q- Have you ever encountered animals on your runs? Hollie once saw a family of bears up here!! I’ve seen lots of deer and rabbits before but today was the first time I came across a random dog.
