I don’t know where it has come from, but I had one of those runs today: a great run! 😀
@TheWelshWookie and I headed out tonight, and I’ll admit that my head wasn’t really in it. But I got my trainers on, and headed out the door. Despite still having a cold, I managed to run with only two stops. Once at mile two to use a tissue (I can’t run and blow my nose at the same time- too much co-ordination required!) and once to take a picture of this wee guy:
@TheWelshWookie told me it’s a slow worm. It isn’t slow, and it isn’t a worm. Every day’s a school day! 😉
Tonight, I’ve been thinking about potential runs for next year, as we only have one half marathon booked so far for 2014: the RnR Madrid. So far, I think I might sign up for a Spartan Sprint, and maybe a Tough Mudder. We’ll see how my trail run and zombie night run go first, though!
Meanwhile, I’ll content myself with reading my mag, that arrived today:
Run: 5 miles, slow but with negative splits 🙂
Trainers: Lunar Racers. These felt great!
Weather: cloudy, but surprisingly warm
I listened to a pod cast again, instead of music today!
Today’s Life Lesson: never argue with an idiot. People watching can’t tell the difference.
Have you booked any runs for 2014 yet?

Good for you!!! I was in my running clothes all morning, but never could talk myself into it! Finally, I just took a shower:) There is always tomorrow, unless I could talk myself into showering again tonight!!!…… Nah! 🙂
I hear you- had plenty of days like those!
I’m thrilled you had a good run. Sorry about the cold. Ugh. Madrid sounds like fun.
Thanks! I’m not ill often, so I’m taking advantage and feeling sorry for myself! 😉
Love when those *good runs* just kind of come out of nowhere and remind us why we love running! Haven’t booked anything yet for 2014 …. maybe should get on that!
Thanks! I love planning races; there’s so, so many to choose from!
I love reading your lessons of the day:)
Thanks! They’re not always positive, and are often as a result of me making a fool of myself! 😮
I hope you feel better soon, but yay for a good run!
How exciting to have a race in Madrid on the books for next year! I recently signed up for 2 races in 2014 – one at the Oregon Coast and one on an island in the Puget Sound near Seattle. I would really like to find an international race too!
I’m so excited- it so great having something different to look forward to!
Don’t ya love those days when running isn’t just satisfying, it’s FUN?
