Loving it!

I'm feeling extra happy today and felt the need to share.

I woke up this morning and knew the wind was blowing out of the north - my building creaks in a particular way. And a wind from the north means cooler temps.

I love it! Temperatures somewhere in the 50s and low humidity. Ideal running weather (well, a little colder wouldn't hurt).

Today's run was effortless. And yet I ran an average pace one minute faster than usual. My entire eight miles were between 8:30 and 9:50, something previously unheard of. It would appear that the miles of training really are paying off.

I am a much better runner now than I was this time last year. I am a much better runner now than I was six months ago! I feel like I say this far too often and yet not often enough - I am so happy training for this marathon.


  1. Love the positive vibes, especially this close to the marathon! Embrace it, save a little in a bag and open it up during taper week!

    1. Maybe an airtight container? And do you think happiness might need to be refrigerated too?

  2. So nice to see you today! Im glad you said something, otherwise I would have kept wondering how I knew you :) So glad to hear this particular run went fabulous! The change in temps does wonders for the mind and body. (im also happy to hear im not the only one who prefers to run when its cooler than 50). Sorry to hear about your run today- but I know you made the right decision. I hope the issue sorted itself out so your next run is more like the one in this post. Cheers!
