So this is the view from my driveway as I head out for my first long run, 6 miles, of my official MARATHON TRAINING! It was beautiful! Since the move, I've been very un-motivated, to say the least, to run. It's been such a whirlwind and
Running in my new hood is not nearly as fun as running in the old hood. I don't have the beautiful beaches to keep me entertained, and I don't have all of the other runners and bikers to give the much needed, nod of the head or good morning, or even keep it up. Instead I have dogs running beside me as I pass their chainlink fences. Not the friendly kinda dogs. The HUGE growling and barking like they want to eat me kinda dogs. I miss my aligators!
However, as I was running I heard an odd noise. As I look over, I see a beautiful swan in her private lake. My how gorgeous she was. I had to stop to take a picture, but it didn't turn out very good. Here it is so you ca get an idea.
So I finished my 6 miler in just over an hour, with more walking than I wanted, but less than I expected, I'm calling it a SUCCESS! I did run into an old face. I used to chase her at the beach...until I caught her. Now I'm chasing her again...until I catch and pass her. :)
Feeling strong and nothing's wrong. Have a GREAT weekend and I'll see you at the races!!!
