You Know You're a Runner When...

I was schedule to work 8-5 today because of an orientation session, but yesterday my boss let me know that I wouldn't need to come into work until 10:00 or 10:30.  She told me I could sleep in, enjoy a quiet breakfast, but I immediately knew I'd use the extra hours to go running.  I had wondered when I'd get my long run in with work, and I was soooooo excited to know I could now run before work... When this happened I realized that I'm definitely one of those crazy running people! :)  I have quickly learned that I NEED TO RUN, or bad things begin to happen... haha!

I ran 8 miles around the neighborhood, and oh my hills!  I definitely walked quite a bit, but I still finished with an average 12 minute pace, which is what I was aiming for to begin with.  It was a really great run.  I love some of the neighborhoods that I live around.  I ran buy quite a few garage sales, so that was fun. :)  It felt great to stretch my legs at a longer distance, and the weather this morning was somewhat cool and overcast which really made the run feel good.  Have a great weekend!!!

  1. isn't it funny how quickly it can become so routine and obessive ( in a good way:) Sounds like a great run!
