Track Run Today
Since my local trail is currently a mass of mud, and the local bike trail is mainly under water (really), I debated where to run after work. Then I remembered, what about the high school track? Nice safe location, no cars to worry about!
It was a bit cold, about 32 degrees, hence the full garb until I got warm. The track was a good choice today. I had an exceptionally horrid day at work and could not wait to get alone. With running in circles at the track, I was able to put on the headphones and just run. Mindlessly. Thinking about nothing except the amusements that Adam Curry was able to provide.
Round and round I went, amused to find myself keeping about a 11.30 pace. I guess I can run faster than my usual pokey slow pace. It was just such a novelty to run on flat surface for a change, and even better to not have to worry about traffic, or dogs, or roots or rocks. It was a very good choice for the afternoon run, I got 8 nice miles in.
