Tuesday was a long day of travel with delays due to the snowstorm & a late bedtime for me. I wasn’t even sure I would want to run & it was chilly (38F, anyone?). I didn’t rush out there but the run was fine, especially with lots of photo stops.
I spent the last mile or so clutching the grass woven roses the homeless? woman insisted on making me — as I ran by she said happy Valentine’s Day & I said over my shoulder that it was my birthday. She called me back & insisted I take them (in a nice way). We chatted for a while but I had no money to give her (not that she asked for any).
I had planned on 4, but needed to get back, shower & change. Turns out I probably could’ve finished the 4 but still just did 3. One more mile ain’t gonna make a difference at this point. The run was fine again.
Not quite the race I wanted, but I finished mostly intact (aside from a large blood blister on a toe) & not my best or worst time. We enjoyed our time here and I’ve added GA so I call that winning.
Favorites of the week
The meet ups — Skirt Sisters above and Karen @ Runningfifty below.
All the food.
All the sights, which I’ll leave for another post. And running in skirts — now it’s back to reality and more snow. It’s February, after all.
