Well that should get the readership interested…I went out to my car to get my gear bag in the afternoon..had everything but the running bra. Sigh. I had to postpone the run until I got home.
As soon as I got home, I changed to get out the door quickly. This actually was going to be titled “New Gear” Run, since I had new shoes, new visor, new socks, and new headphones.
Check out the shoes!!
Aren’t they purty?? I was doing a gear check for Mohican (yes I am actually thinking about training for this race) and realized about all but two of my shoes are beat to crap. And I usually find this out while running on roads somewhere. But I must say, I am impressed with all this nice green on the Saucony!
I also had a new visor, from Runjunk.com where I had also bought new water bottles. (Again, checking my gear ahead of time!)
These two pics cracked me up. A different dog in each pic as I moved the camera.
I also ran in my new DryFit socks, but can’t really review them, since my feet stayed dry and out of puddles.
Ok, I had a great run! Since the weather was perfect, somewhere in the high 50’s it was a bit cool, with a bit of wind blowing. This kept me from getting hot. Maybe the energy drink I sucked down on the way home helped, but I was keeping a very good pace for myself. I had told the husband I was going on my longer ‘loop’ but I didn’t really remember how long it was since the last time I had gone on this particular route was January..
It’s a bit greener out there now. Just a nice, solid, good pace effort for me. I was actually running all the small inclines (still walking the big hills!)
Two dogs were waiting for me as I finished a nice 10 mile run…and the Shepherd gets her own pic since she’s so gorgeous..
