The United States of Euphoria

Well. . . sort of! There were certainly moments early on in my run this morning when all combined to be perfect: temperature, wind, energy, clouds, music. . .

I started out GREAT! I listened to 411's "Love Song" about 5 times. I love it and for some reason it was really helping me this morning.

Saw another runner - one I have seen only one other time back very very early into my C 2 5k days. He took me seriously this time. Made eye contact. I smiled. It was great! Plus, this time and last time I ran I saw the "other" runner out walking her dog. Last time we acknowledged each other. This time we said "hi". I think I've OFFICIALLY made it as a "runner"!! Go me!

The last mile was a toughy. It was getting hotter. And the humidity was up near 30%. But, I made it. 3 miles in 33 minutes.

A little massage tonight and I should be ready for 4 miles tomorrow. Yeah!

I must, however, remember the mental note I made to myself at the beginning of this morning's run: getting to bed early will be vital to my running schedule this week.

So, off to get my evening "done" so I can hit the sack early!
