Today felt like Spring!!!! 60 degrees in January, amazing…..I guess that global warming is really kicking in….although I know this is not necessarily a good thing I am certainly not complaining. I hadn’t really planned on running today but in this weather how could I not, I mean I actually ran in shorts, in January!!!!
This is definitely more of a Spring outfit, wouldn’t you agree?!?! I usually just head out the door and run but last week I met Sarah from Running with a Toddler at the Massapequa Park Preserve and I
wanted needed to run there again today, so I hopped in the car and headed to the preserve instead!
When you live in one place for 33 soon to be 34 years sometimes you take for granted the beauty that surrounds you but today I ran and took in all that beauty!!!
These pics are from my halfway point!! I know I didn’t run that long but because it was 1 o’clock and I hadn’t eaten since breakfast at 8 am I refueled with a Blueberry Pomegranate GU. I absolutely loved this flavor and will definitely be purchasing more!! Here is my time and mileage at the halfway point:
Not bad, a biker even passed me and said I was running at a great pace…I love that type of encouragement during runs, don’t you!!!
Gorgeous!! Running in places like this makes me want to run longer!!!!
I know I look like a sweaty mess but I really pushed myself hard the whole run except for the last 3/4 mile which I just considered a cool down. I wore my dBLogic earphones for the first time and so far so good…full review to come next week during my birthday/blogiversary virtual run celebration (you should sign up if you haven’t already).
Here is the breakdown of my run:
Excluding the last 3/4 mile which was my cool down I think I ran pretty fast!!! I will definitely be running through this preserve more often!!!
How was your Saturday? Did you have beautiful weather today?? If so, how did you enjoy it??
