I took my time getting ready for this run. Woke up at 5:30AM, surprised because I forgot that it was Saturday and that got me going. I “made donuts” for my littlest baby while I watched “Chef Wanted” on the DVR and drank 32 ounces of water. Ate a pack of gummies for some quick energy, dressed, kissed the husband, and I was out the door!
Saturday runs are always in the dark of the early morning so I always run with one earbud only so I can hear what’s coming my way. However, I had to get the new iPhone and the headphone jack didn’t match up to my armband so I played my tunes on the external music. I bet people laughed at my music selections! My clothes are super reflective (except my for my shorts if its that time of the month) and I wear my reflective bands from Nathan. One day I’ll invest in some kind of running headlamp with a flood light.
It was a cool morning and I had predetermined my route the night before so it was a no brainer. This allowed me to enjoy the sights and relax. Got on the Julington Creek Bridge as the sun was coming out and the water was so nice, then I looked at the railings and I saw so many full-grown black widow spiders and they were all the way along the bridge. Yeah, I ran up and down that bridge really fast. Hahahah! I promised my oldest daughter that I would post a picture next time.
My favorite part of a long run is the point where I press the “End Run” on my Nike+ SportWatch and see what praise comes up. Today I was surprised! I got “Record Breaker” fireworks and music! My fastest 10K! Whoo Hoo! Love it when I break records!
I hope your Saturday run was an awesome one, too. Keep it up! Happy running!
