I’m having an awesome time with my family in San Diego but I think I brought the crappy Florida weather with me because it’s been cloudy, humid, and raining or misting since I arrived. The weather let up for a little bit this morning, so I went for a short run and took a few pictures to share with you.
Fall leaves in my mom’s front yard. We’ll call this, “things we don’t have in Florida that excite me.”
See, Melissa? I can go on pretty runs too.
The hills here always kill me. They look so innocent in pictures.
This one brought me to an almost 13:00 minute mile pace. By the time I got to the top, I had to stop and put my hands on my knees to catch my breath. Nothing like a good hill to make you feel out of shape.
You may have noticed, I haven’t been bitching about my running shoes lately. I’m still rocking the Brooks Ghost 5’s and they’re treating me pretty well.
In the end, I ran 3.13 miles in 30 minutes. That’s a 9:36 pace which isn’t too bad considering I suck at hills because I never run them.
Plus, at least I was still faster than this guy.
Now I’m off to get my nails done and go to the mall with my mommy. :-)
