I wanted to be on my feet for 4 hours today. I ended up doing 3.25.
I started a bit later than I wanted to, but was glad to see George off to Bradbury and then get ready and head out. I was experimenting today with a different water belt. It seemed good for the Birthday FA, so I was pretty excited to use it today. Not a mile into the run and I realized it wasn't going to work. I thought, I should probably go home and change it out, but I was hoping it would work out. It didn't. I ditched it less than half way in to my intended run.
George mentioned to me what I should eat before I head out. I sort of forgot to do it. I also thought last night I should make a PB&J and take it with me. I didn't. So needless to say, I was craving PB&J about half way through. I figured, don't ask me why, 2 Gu's would do the trick after having one before I left the house. Some guy almost hit me on the dirt road. OK, it was early for normal people, but he was heading right for me and it wasn't dark. A squirrel fell hard from a tree right next to me as I headed up Abbott Mountain. I almost had a heart attack. There was probably more, but it was really all good.
It was nice to run through Nature Conservancy Trails and head up Abbott Mountain. I haven't run up there for awhile. I'm glad I know that belt won't work and pretty glad the nutrition thing was a bust. All good for next time. So when training goes bad, it really is good!
What a wonderful day it is out there! I'm patiently waiting for George to come home with Bruce's Burritos and hear all about his run!
I hope y'all had great runs today!
