I was planning to go for a run yesterday, but I never really found a good stopping point to do it. I promised myself before I went to bed that I would go first thing this morning and run down to the river and walk back just to make sure I got in my exercise for the day. And that's what I did.
My pace has definitely improved since the Epic Illness of 2013 knocked me out of commission for a few weeks, but most of my route was downhill today so this pace doesn't really count. I gotta say, though. It was kind of nice to feel like I was running fast even if this pace is really only fast to me.
I got down to the river and took a few pictures, but left almost immediately because I was cold and had to get back to studying. I'll be really excited when I finally build myself up to running 10k and beyond. I want 3 miles to be my short run and I want my uphill pace to be as fast as my downhill. There was a time in the not-too-distant past when I thought running at all was impossible. Who is this new person that wants to run longer and faster?
