I really do have some pretty areas around my house. I don't often go out here because there are some killer hills to take on before I get to the beautiful flat area, but since I'm training for MDI, I thought I should really not avoid the hills.
I really was enjoying running on this dirt road last week, but quickly aborted the run when I noticed an unleashed Rottweiler in the middle of the road. I don't know the dog and didn't really know the people on the road, so I thought it would be best to just turn around. It did mean my run was longer than I wanted, but I'll always take a longer run.
It only took about 50 attempts to get this partially okay running shadow.
Here I am just freaking ecstatic that I've have such awesome running weather and some equally great runs lately! Here's hoping that the weather and run are both incredible when I take on MDI in a few weeks!
And most of all, I've LOVED running with these two when I can. Izzy actually had a melt down one day when she realized I had run without her earlier - which meant that I went out for another mile with both kids.
Then there's these two boys - they've been troopers. One day I didn't quite get in all of the mileage I wanted before the bus dropped them off, so I greeted them with a "hey guys, let's go for a run!" They were both so happy to head out on a run with me.
When is your favorite season to run in?
