running crazy!

     Running crazy! Well not really, but when I got up to go running this morning it kinda started running.  It continued to rain as I left to go running and got slowly worse as the run went along.  It did not really start coming down until I was back at my jeep stretching against the spare tire on the back.  One of my parents made a "crazy" comment for running in the rain, so thats where that came from.
     It was actually my best time yet. 41:10 for 3.19 miles. (roughly a 5k) which was an average pace of 12:54. not super fast, but faster.  I am getting there.  My run keeper app sadly had a brain fart and some how recorded the distance at 2.76 miles so it skewed my results read out, but it correctly recorded the time, so I was able to work with that.
      So over all great run, and I had my new running clothes on so I looked cute too!

Just keep running!

Annnnd I'm back!

So after a bout of disappointment I do not particularly wish to go into, I have returned to the world of running.  And I bought $142.94 worth of new running gear to celebrate. (though I may return one or 2 items as I may have gotten a little shop-happy)
      As of today I have started running in the morning before work.  Technically today I ran in the morning before my day off, but same time, same idea.  Today went really well.  I didn't get out at 5:30am like I had wanted to, more like 6:00am, but it IS my day off.  It was nice to run around the lake and not have to dodge rude people who don't yield the tiniest bit and expect you to jump into the road so they don't have to move slightly to their right while I move slightly to my right.  I should be able to run, shower, make and eat breakfast and make lunch and be ready to go to work on time.  Here's hoping it all works out.  I was a bit tired today, but seeing as everyone seems to do this morning running with no ill affects on their work ( or so it seems, these people all seem to still have jobs) I am going with the idea that I'll get used to it after a few runs.  Hoping to get a long run in on Sunday, I don't have to go in until 10 on Sunday.  We will soon find out!

Just keep running!
