Finally, I figured out how to dress for a 45 degree run outside. Two long sleeves (this from Old Navy and this from Patagonia), and long tights. No hats, headbands, gloves required! I wanted to hit 7 miles today, so I ran 2 miles straight down 25A/Northern Blvd, 2 miles straight back to my house, and then completed the Manhasset 5K route that we run every October. For the first time ever, I actually RAN the ENTIRE hill on Rockwood, and actually did it after 5 miles of running, not 2. High fives all the way home from there. The run felt like one of my best in a long time. I kept the pace just under 10 minute miles and felt like I could have kept going if I had to. But I’m glad I didn’t have to.
I came home and scarfed down one of my friend Elizabeth’s homemade blueberry muffins. I may or may not have been thinking about it throughout most of the run. Cheers for Saturday night martini’s after my longest run of the season so far!
Missed you, Marissa!
