10 miles / 1:30 / 9:00 avg pace
Brr, it was cold this morning but I loved it! Despite being someone who is always cold, I think the best running weather is about 47-50 degrees. Very technical, I know. Perfect for shorts, a long-sleeve tech T, and gloves.
I had a great run this morning. Me and the right hamstring have made amends. I decided to run on the trail for a change of scenery. For some reason, they keep laying down more and more rocks on the trail. Aren’t trails supposed to be left alone? Isn’t that the appeal of running on them? This trail seems more man-made…and I kept rolling my ankle on those damn rocks. I will make a terrible ultra runner.
Matt and I are headed to Brigantine this weekend for some R&R. It’s supposed to be a beautiful, warm weekend. Perfect for the shore! Since dogs are allowed on the beach after October 1, Hawk is heading to the beach for the first time!
I’ll be stalking (er, tracking) like a crazy lady on Sunday with Chicago, Portland, and Steamtown all taking place on the same day. I wish everyone good weather and a great race if you are running!
A few shout-outs…
Chicago: go Larry…think and believe sub-4:00!
Portland: go Claire go! You will, you can, do this!
Steamtown: Candace, enjoy your first marathon! Celia, 3:34:59, go get it!
Rolling your ankle on rocks and running more anyway means you will make an AWESOME ultra runner. 🙂
Thanks for the shout-out! Have fun on your weekend in Brigantine 🙂 R&R sounds wonderful!
I always roll me ankles on rocks too! I’m a disaster. Glad your hammy is feeling better and you had a great run! Hope you do some serious relaxing this weekend 🙂
I trip on the bridle path in Central Park all the time so more rocks = more falls for me.
thanks so much kristy!!!! your support means a lot 🙂 have an awesome weekend!
I’ve been loving the cool weather lately, too! I think low to mid 50’s is perfect for me, especially if it’s overcast. hope you’re having a great weekend!
Sounds like a beautiful fall weekend! Hope Hawk enjoyed the beach!!
I think I have some kind of weird ankle flexibility. I have rolled my ankle on large gravel before while wearing flip flops… scraped the top of my foot – yet my ankle felt fine. They added more large gravel to one of my favorite parks…if I can maintain my pace on that, I’m golden once I’m on the roads or flatter ground again! hope you had a great weekend at the shore.
