So, this week - two mid-week runs.
Two six mile midweek runs.
When on earth did I start being the runner who could do mid-week six milers? When did that become not-a-long run?
I'm stoked. I realized on my run that once I gain some confidence in what I'm doing, I start having fun doing it. It's that way at work, at home, with my kids, in the community... and now with running.
The other midrun musing I had - I seriously look like Mrs Whatsit when I run. Remember the character from Madeleine L'Engle's A Wrinkle In Time who wears the crazy, mismatched patterns and socks and layers? Yeah, that's me. Every single run. Tonight it was red long-sleeve shirt with neon vest, white hat, crazy-pattern orange/blue bandanna on my ears, white-and-purple skirt, over black tights, and pink striped socks. Add a headlamp, a blinkie on my back pocket, and a pair of knuckle lights and I must have been visible from at least 400 yards. (Either that or they should not have been driving.) I tried to get a picture of it after the run, but my arms are apparently too short to do that very well and there were no mirrors around...
