When I woke up Saturday morning I didn't really have much of a plan for the run; I know I needed to run 16 miles and I figured I would just wing it. (Ironically my first 16 miler was kinda like this... LOL!)
So there I am running along, with no agenda at all, just turning here and there, la-dee-da. I realized I was basically headed in the general direction of Cady Way so I cut through the neighborhood I'm in and headed on over. I ditched my water bottle in some bushes since I knew the trail had a few drinking fountains and I was tired of carrying it and jumped on. I was having one of those runs where time was just flying by and I was smiling and waving at everyone I passed. It wasn't Bayshore, and I wasn't with B.o.B. or the B.R.A. but dare I say I was having fun!?
About now it was time to head back home as I was well over the halfway mark of my run, so back towards my water bottle I go. The rest of the miles slipped by so quickly that I seriously couldn't believe I had put 16 miles behind me when I finished. That was my longest run since Chicago! Amazing! That's what it was and that's how I felt. I seriously forgot how much I enjoy long runs, especially when it's so nice out! I'm still beaming!
(Maybe I'll cut my hair like this after I donate it... hmmm...)
One last thing; you know how I said I'd try to catch up on my reader?!? Yeah my computer died the other day. When I start it up it goes straight to a black screen asking me to load the original Windows 97 disk. Way to kick a girl while she's down huh? FML. I apologize ahead of time if I totally suck at commenting and posting this week...
