Last night we watched the biggest loser, and ran to Skinny Dip before hand so we could eat ice cream (or frozen yogurt) while we watched people lose weight!
I haven’t been consistantly running since our race at the end of October, and since the time change I decided to start running in the mornings. Since marrying Tyler, he’s pretty strict about me not running in the dark, so I was starting to get frustered since it wasn’t light until 7:15am! There was no way I could run, shower, and be even remotely on time for work, so I’m (of course) thrilled to have my morning run back! I hit the road this morning at 6:44am and ran for 4 miles in 41:14min. It really isn’t great, but morning runs are always a little slower for me.
My goal is to do it under 39:00 min tomorrow!
The fog this morning was glorious, especially over the lakes I ran by. I was able to rest my mind and really think about the things I’m grateful for… which is a long list!
- I’m grateful for Tyler’s really good job. I can’t even tell you how happy I am.
- Getting to take a class this semester. I’ve got 10 classes to finish once I’m done this semester and I CAN’T WAIT to graduate.
- The gloriously cool air, esp in the mornings when I run. I love running under the trees and enjoying their magnificent color.
- It was our 3 month anniversary last week (Nov.6), and it was so amazing to realize that we’ve been happily married for a whole 1/4 of a year! Tyler pulled me into a hug and informed me, “today is the first day towards 6 months!” A tear rolled down my cheek… it was so precious
I love clearing my mind during my runs, getting ready for the day, and not allowing the things that worry me to drag me down. I love running.
