Streak Day 5

Day 5 for #chasethebirdchallenge.  Today was the EQT 10 miler in Pittsburgh, Pa.  I was registered to run, but at the last minute decided not to go because of the weather.  Cold and rainy I can run in, but I didn’t want my mom standing in it. Bleh. And then it was 70º and sunny.  I figured maybe it just wasn’t meant to be.  I came off the Chicago Marathon and ran a (few seconds short of a PR) half marathon a few weekends later.  Maybe these legs need a break.

I’m not sure if it was the time change or what, but my kids lost their minds today.  My husband went to work this morning and after I cried while watching the NYC Marathon, I texted him to say that I WILL be running today.  I must have needed this run.  Rarely do I run more than 1 mile under 8:45-8:50, I ran 4 with an average 8:08!  Splits 8:08, 8:00, 8:20, 8:04! Now it’ll be a running joke on how I wish I could keep that up for 22.2 more miles.

Lake Miles are the best miles!  Love a good sunset run.
