Until the Denver Marathon. I ran 7 miles this morning. Probably as slow as I have ever run, but it was nice. It was a beautiful morning and I took a beautiful route, even if it was WAY too hilly. I really love slow long distance running. This is a picture I took in April of the route I ran this morning. I love it there. There is a two mile climb to get to that road, then the road undulates for a couple miles before it starts heading into the mountains. I turned around at 3.5 miles and headed home.
After about 3 miles, I realized that I felt good and nothing hurt. That is the most amazing feeling for me. I bought a water bottle to carry with me, it has a strap and a pocket and I really like it. It really helps to have water on a run that takes longer than an hour.. I am not going to tell you how much longer than an hour - I have my pride!
Yesterday I missed my run because I had an all day prayer day to attend. It was the beginning of the Biblical School I am beginning. It was wonderful and my head feels so full, but my heart does too!
This afternoon I am making barbequed ribs, cole slaw, and corn on the cob. The family is coming over and it will be very nice. My son requested ribs. His wish is my command for now. I am so very thrilled to have him back from Iraq... safe and sound, healthy and happy.
