So the beach weekend is almost here and I can’t wait to see my friends from NC again!! I miss you guys a lot up here in DC! With new friends meeting old friends, it is going to be a great weekend.
I had to get one run in early so I was not always running while at the beach. Last night I did a 8 miler, 1.5 mile warm up chill pace(8:00) then tempo run for 5 miles (6:45 pace) then another 2 miles of cool down (8:00 pace). Thanks to Daniel, I had ice cold water the whole way, he was my bike pacer/ water handler. I had never been through the Georgetown University campus until last night when we went through it. Not only is that a great school, it is a great place to run. There are so many hills and you know it is a killer hill when your friend on the bike says, man these are some pretty big hills. As I was running up there, trying not to throw up the bean dinner I had eater a couple hours earlier, I just replied, shut up no talking. I never to that, I am always talking but during the tempo, hills are a challenge. I did what any person who loves to run would do, sprinted up the hills. Not knowing that the entire campus was on an uphill, I was dead after that and still have more miles to put in. The challenges in life make us stronger!
With the rain storms out there now, I am out. Have a great day until tomorrow. Make it a great day, smile, and meet someone new today! And don’t forget you have the opportunity to decide if you are in a good mood or a bad mood, make the right choice!
