What a Great Run

Saturday, we decided to head out for a run.  The weather wasn’t great, it was a bit on the cold side and windy.  When we walked out the door I said to myself, “if I get uncomfortable, I am going home.”  At the same time Emily as having some nausea issues and wasn’t feeling it either.  Regardless of the discomfort, we started the run.

As we got up the road from the house, the wind blew hard and bit any part of my exposed skin, but we went on.  By the end of the first mile, the weather wasn’t as painful.  Overall we were at the start of a pretty good run and finding new paths to explore.

By mile three we found our way into a park we hadn’t seen before and were able to run through an arboretum and do a little trail running.

From mile 3 to mile 6 we ran through a couple of neighborhoods looking at some houses.

Rounding out the first 10k, we were in the park near our house and by that point decided that we might as well finish off the 8 miles we had planned.  By the time we got back to the house I had logged 8.5 miles and had gas left in the tank to keep going.  I am really excited about todays run and feel like I owe a lot to the cycling I have been doing for the lack of muscle fatigue in my legs and my calmer than normal heart rate.Watch Picture

At around 7.5 Miles I took this picture.  This is when we figured out that we were both developing a blister on our right feet.

At the beginning of the run when Emily was showing off her, I don't feel good face.
