Morning Run

This morning, I woke up fully expecting to get on the treadmill and run 4 miles.


The TV in the treadmill room is hooked to Dish but not to the DVR or a DVD player. Ugh. There's nothing to watch on TV at 5 a.m....nothing good anyway. I was totally dragging my feet and finding excuses not to get on that treadmill. Well, I let the dogs out to potty and when I opened the door, I felt COOL air! Gasp!!!! lol I had to walk outside to see what was going on and sure enough, it was COOL air!! I didn't care at that point if it was pitch black outside...I was gonna run outside!! So I got all my stuff together, I put on my red reflector with flashing light, and I headed out the door. I'm a HUGE chicken and I hate being in the dark by myself. There were a few street lamps to light the way but not nearly enough! lol I held my iphone in my had and kept the light on the entire time so people could see me. My road is 0.2 miles one way and 0.2 miles back so a total of 0.4 miles. I usually cross the very busy street and run in the next neighborhood but I decided not to do that this morning cause it was too dark! (Big scaredy cat, remember?) I have Run Keeper on my phone and that helped me keep track of my distance. In total I ran 10 times up and down my road! Hah! I know I looked crazy but I didn't care! It felt GOOD and I wasn't passing up that chance! Can we say HELLO FALL?! I wish it would come sooner. It is, of course, hot outside once again. Ugh.


  1. Where do you live?? I love Oregon because while its still getting hot out, its usually not too bad if I get out before 8am :)

  2. I would be scared to run in the dark too! I'm loving that the cool weather is finally starting to make an appearance!

  3. I am the same way with it being dark out! Total scaredy cat!!! What is Run Keeper? I need an updated phone! Lol. That or a Garmin :) (maybe Santa will surprise me this year)

  4. HELLO FALL! lol!!!!

    you are a nerd for running up and down your road BTW. you should have taken the pup!
