Scenes from a Run

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. :-)

    If you want to see leaves in Florida, come to our house. My husband claims we have the only tree in Florida that sheds its leaves. It’s true — we have dead leaves EVERYWHERE. I wish they were pretty and golden-red like the ones in your mom’s yard. Ours are an ugly brown.

    I’m liking the Ghost 5s too. I’m only a few runs in but I dig ‘em. Enjoy your trip!

    Nice work on the scenic run. Remember when I got lost on that trail a month or so ago? It was really pretty there. But a girl was running there alone after dark the other night (duh, but still) and was assaulted. #neverrunningthereAGAIN

      Yeah, I’ve stayed away from the park where I saw the guy held at gunpoint myself. Sucks because I loved it there!
