Woof. That felt like traaaash. The cold weather has my head feeling like the cabin of airplane...pressurized! BUT, I did something, which is better than nothing. Oh, and don’t ask me about the math on my duration/average pace...that’s all the Apple watch’s doing! Ha!
Anyone else getting hit by a snow/sleet storm?? ❄️
Just got home from a misty & COLD #pumpkinpie5k !! I was worried going into it because I hadn’t ran since last Friday, but as soon as I saw @lizgiorgi I was excited to get going! My last three races were alone, so it was so nice to run with a friend! The race energy was great & I just love running City Park. Overall, I would say this is the run that finally made me say I’M A RUNNER! It was easy & fun & I felt like I could go more! I cannot wait for my @nordictrack treadmill to arrive so I can start my marathon training! Ready to 🏃🏻♀️!!
Running makes me happy. Our bishop this week told us to do something for ourselves that we enjoy and I feel lucky I’ve already found it. I get to do it with friends, I get to make goals and see self improvement, and that runners high 😅 I know running isn’t for everyone but i hope everyone can find something they truly enjoy in life. .
Nature will keep any secret well hidden. I thought this sharp valley I ran past today looked a bit odd. Turns out it is the remains of an old, old diatomit grave ("Kiselgur" in Danish). In the 1930 digging diatomit was a pretty big industri in the area of Denmark where I live. Diatomit is a natural ressource like chalk. It is found in the ground in very few places on earth. Iceland, Algeria ... and Denmark. Once extracted, purifed and dried it was used for a number of things - producing nitroglycerin was one of them. And a lot of it was exported to the Hydro plant in Norway. The industri dried out in the 1960s and todaythe graves are rellics burried under a green and brown rug ...
Miles don't seem quite as long when running with friends.
A great start to a Saturday!
An easy, chatty run with a 'new to running' friend. 🏃♀️🏃♀️ We now have a standing 6:15 a.m. Saturday run 😁
#pumpkinpie5k ready-ish! 🤣 I haven’t run since last Friday, I intend to try & take this race slow & steady & kick off my marathon training on the right foot! My treadmill is ordered & I’m hoping it arrives after Thanksgiving! I’m ready to hit the ground running!!! 🎃🥧🏃🏻♀️
