Just got back from doing 4 miles in Ma Soeur's neighborhood. It's beautiful, sunny and a downright balmy 50 something degrees outside. I got so hot during my first 2 miles that I had to strip down to shorts and a tank for my last 2. Admittedly it wasn't my best run, and I am D-Y-I-N-G to plug in my Garmin to check out my stats, but alas, I didn't bring my laptop or cord w/ me. Ma Soeur's neighborhood is small, and so I had to get a bit creative to figure out to accomplish my 4 miles without looping the same loop about 15 times. I used mapmyrun.com and found a good, albeit confusing 2-mile loop, which would allow me to stop for water. Unfortunately, despite my studying the map for a good 10 minutes, I still got confused and spent the first 2 miles frantically going back and forth, trying to find my way. Needless to say, by the time I got back to the house for a water break, I was annoyed, hot and tired. For the last 2 miles, I decided to stick to a safe route. I was pretty tired, and it didn't go quite as seamlessly as a 4-miler should at this point, but whatever, I finished. I'm now inhaling hot cocoa and a breakfast pita and then will get ready to meet the gorgeous CRYSTAL for a coffee date in Santana Row. Then, I will feast on a burger and french fries. :D
HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS EVE!!
