I absolutely L-O-V-E October and all of the Fall-i-days that come along with it. First thing I did this morning was flip my calendar over to the new month and look what I spotted! PEI is now showing in less than 3 weeks.........eek!
I had to put in this little sketch of Lola I did with my Early Literacy group this morning, lol. They asked a million and one questions about her when we did this!
I knew my 5 mile easy run tonight would be a soggy one. We have had rain for every single second of this day. No joke. It hasn't let up a bit. I decided to use an older set of ear buds for my music on the run tonight in case they got wet. I stand firm on my belief that untangling ear buds should be an Olympic sport! Grrr.........at least it gives me a warm up, ;)
My run tonight was brought to you by this video shown on the Johnny Miles Facebook page today:
Wow! I'm pretty sure this video will be added to my 'Favourites' for those days when I cannot seem to drag my butt out the door to run and would rather curl up on the couch. I like to call this "Motivation in 3:25 minutes!" Nike never disappoints with their commercials. How do they do it?
Tonight I actually wore my running jacket for the first time in what feels like forever! I figured I'd get soaked and cold during the first mile if I didn't wear it. As it turns out, it kept me pretty warm/dry-ish throughout the whole run. Rain wasn't teaming down my face or anything, but it was a steady shower for the entire time.
I stayed along the main roads tonight running on the sidewalks. I felt pretty good considering the weekend that was chalked full of running and racing. :) Running in the dark in the pouring down rain is pretty cool actually. I literally had the streets to myself and I felt as though I was gliding over the sidewalk.
7:54 Avg. pace/mile
My repeat song for this evening's run was a new one to me....that I really love. It's City and Colour's "Fragile Bird." You must give this song a listen. It feels really cool to listen/run to. :) I hope you like it.
Well, it's time for bed. I have no races this weekend, just my regular training runs as a part of the tapering down in preparation for the marathon. Therefore, I plan on getting as much rest as I can. :)
What is your favourite thing about Fall?
Do you like running in the rain?
