Wow - I have NO WORDS to describe how awesome today's run was! The weather was a little drizzly at first - about 55 degrees - but the sun came out and it was a BEAUTIFUL fall day! That isn't what made the run so perfect though! Today we ran 4 miles and honestly - if I didn't have to pick Colin up from school - I could have probably run another two! Everything just seemed to fall into place! I felt great! It was SO amazing to be out in the fresh air and to truly enjoy running! I have never enjoyed a run as much as I did today! I think Nelly felt it too - neither one of us felt the need to see what mile we were on! I hope I have many more runs like that!!
My son is doing a fund raiser at his school called the jog a thon. He has to get people to sponsor him and then he runs around the track and people pay him either a flat rate or per lap. He is SO excited about it! I have not told him yet - but on Saturday (the day after the jog a thon) we are ALL going to be in a family 1k. It's going to be GREAT! Even Susie is registered! It says that even toddlers can do it - so she is in! It is going to be SO much fun! We are going to dress in our costumes - which means I'm going to have to get going on Peter's! Thankfully everyone else's is done!
Well, the rain has returned to Oregon. It POURED last night - we were SO lucky to have a reprieve for our morning run! We are probably going to have to get used to running in the rain - which means I'm going to have to get myself some sort of running jacket. Today was a little chilly in short sleeves! Today was the first time I used a rain cover for the baby jogger - I think Susie really approved! She fell fast asleep! She usually puts up a bit of a fuss but today she really enjoyed herself. She thought it was quite funny when I put the cover over her! Silly girl!
Well, I'm going to call it a night - we've had a rough couple of days! Thanks for reading - sorry for the long break in posts. I'm back now! No worries - I've kept up my running! :-)
