My Gratifying 57 minutes & the 1st Long Run of the Season

Instead of stairs and yoga last night, I needed to make up my long run that I couldn't do last week. It took me 57 gratifying minutes and I loved every minute on the treadmill. The first couple of miles went by so fast, I couldn't believe it. The miles just kept flying. Every time I looked down, another mile had past. It felt like I was only on the treadmill for 10 minutes. I'm still on my runners high!

Look at my smile last night. I'm beaming from cheek to cheek. The seven is as in fifty seven minutes. This is such a great accomplishment. It was like the good 'ol days, when I was "hard core" training (for me). I've missed this and I'm so glad I have a goal to keep me training (and in line).

Yesterday, I was looking online and saw this:

I think this would be so cute for an appetizer for Christmas. It's a cracker with pepperoni, thinly sliced celery, peppercorns (or anything for the eyes and nose) and cheese. So adorable!

Hopefully you're not eating while you're reading this (do you like my nail polish color?):

Last night, I felt a little pull on my left foot's pinky toe. I think my sock turned and the sewing ended up rubbing there. Since I haven't been running too far, I haven't been using any body glide. I guess it's that time.  It's a start of a blister. Time to get it healed, before my next run, on Thursday. 

I'm catching up on my runs and Thursday, I will be. 6 miles. I will be running my long run next week on Tuesday, instead of Thursday. If you remember, I do want to have a life and keep training. This is how I do it, I move things around, as needed. I'm still meeting my friend that Saturday, and she's agreed to try a little further distance. I think there will be more walking, but that's fine. It's (for) fun. 

Do you use body glide for every run? What color are your toes (or fingers)? What's your long run distance? What are you doing for Thanksgiving?
