One of Those Runs

Ever have one of those runs? What I mean by "one of those runs" is a perfect run. The air has a chill to it with a slight breeze, other runners are out saying hi to each other with a huge smile, your muscles feel great, your fully carbed up , you have a ton of energy and you feel great the entire time? One of those runs...

I was so happy when I got home, I still can't stop smiling. Don't get me wrong, I use every ounce of energy I had and I'm drenched in sweat and I finished in a great time (for me). So, this is a start to the perfect day. I had 11 miles on the schedule, but I took a wrong turn and ended with 11.39 miles. Oh well, it was still great!

Jason should be getting up soon and then we're off for part one of a 2 part weekend (I get 2 more parts next weekend, too). I have no idea what we're doing and he has the entire weekend completely planned.

Whatever he had planned today, he changed it to tomorrow, because I need all my energy for this. I can't wait to see what we're doing!! Happy early birthday to me (it's on Wednesday).

What was your perfect run like?


  1. Funny that you've run 11+ miles and Jason is still sleeping. :) Great job! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

  2. Is that in front of your place!? It looks awesome. I love all of the shade.

    My perfect run is in cooler weather. MUch much cooler weather.

  3. How cool that you have a fun weekend planned out for you! And congrats on such a perfect run!

  4. I love runs like that! The closest thing to a "perfect run" for me was after a long bike ride earlier in the day, I headed out for a long run in a downpour with plans to keep it "slow." I started out slow and felt like I was gliding the whole way; I could have run forever! After nine miles, I check in and "Woah, I must be hitting seven minute miles."

    Can't wait to hear what Jason planned out!!!
