It seems that I haven’t been getting the mileage in over the last few weeks, for one reason or another. Gettin’ sick doesn’t help. I was finally able to get out and let me tell ya, the rest was actually a good thing. I felt great on the hills and ran the entire 10 miles non-stop with the occasional tying of the shoe and watch check. Around mile 8, I had to occasionally switch to a power walk on the up hills, but I was still cranking. Feels good to be back again.
It was dark during the run and after a while became a bit spooky. I started to see moving shadows and was creeped out by it. There was one shadow that I stared at for a while and then it blinked. The really weird part was that it only had one eye, one really big white eye. Well that is what I thought for a split second and then it ran away - backwards. I think it was a deer.
