I didn't run my regular route today for a couple of reasons: the scheduled run was cancelled because of the rain and I had a facial appointment. So after my facial when the rain cleared out I had to figure out how I was going to get in my 5 miles. I decided to map a run in the neighborhood using map my run. I love this site because it allows me to plan out my mileage and there's no guessing. Anyway, I have discovered that I prefer running the city streets to running the circles on the trail. The trail is beautiful and it's on a lake and its lined with trees but its a 1.5 mile circle. No surprises. Boring. I ran a route today that I never ran before and I did it at an acceptable pace. It was cloudy the entire time and the rain threatened me during the entire 5 miles. As soon as I completed the run and came in the house, the rain started up again.
I love my life.
