Perfect running weather
Talk about change! After writing yesterday about the awful weather, I woke up this morning to a weather fairytale. Warm, sunny, 60 degrees. Running perfection.
When I got home from work yesterday, I was greeted by Holly Dolly and Broc Man. It was so fun to come home to these sweet faces.
These kids make me so happy.
I had to quick change and get ready for a dinner that we were going to with our friends from church. We had a great time and even met some new people.
This morning I woke up hungry, excited about the weather, and ready to run! I had a big bowl of oatmeal with pumpkin, banana, pear, and blackberries mixed in.
After I ate and lounged around, I headed to the park for my 11 miles. The park was crowded, filled with people running, biking, and kids running around. I loved running past people and seeing how happy they were. The first couple of weekends of beautiful weather after a long, cold winter bring out the joy in everyone. Love it.
I practiced with gels during this run and took a gel at miles 5.5, 7, and 9. It worked well, but I really need to figure out how to carry water with me because I was thirsty in a big way! Overall, it was a strong, beautiful run. If I could order weather for a run, today would be exactly what I would want!
When I got home, I had a veggie scramble mixed with eggs and deli turkey and a side of greek yogurt.
I am looking forward to enjoying the afternoon and continuing to enjoy this beautiful weather 🙂
