I was so inspired by the marathoners running Nationwide Columbus on Sunday and the feeling of having my arm almost healed (minus a small ulnar nerve injury still present at my orthopedic follow-up), I really jumped at the chance of hitting the trails for this BEAUTIFUL fall week. On Wednesday, I had a flex day from work and took advantage of a longer run. I was in awe the entire run as my feet crunched upon the autumn leaves and the sun shined on my back. It’s runs like those that make it all worth it.
Monday: 5 miles
Tuesday: 4 miles
Wednesday: 7 miles
Thursday: 4 miles with my sis….chatting it up at 6:50 a.m…nothing beats it. We continued our sisterly bonding that evening for a happy hour drink at Rusty Bucket. 80 degrees on October 25th? We sat outside on the patio…gorgeous!
Friday: 5 mile run in the AM
Saturday: 8 miles (woo hoo…actually a free weekend day!!!)
Sunday: Making Strides Against Breast Cancer wake up call at 5:00 a.m. to work registration! Managed to sneak in a 3 miler after a little nap. :)
Weekly totals: 36 miles (moving on up!..for me, at least :)
