Day 338: On Wednesday it rained. That is the most beautiful statement that I can write for a state that is in a severe drought. It rained so much that I was preparing to stay inside all day and make up my own version of an insanity workout that would include Crate & Barrel box dodging as the main event. Fortunately around 3:00 pm the rain stopped and I was able to get in a good 40 minute run before a rainy day pizza dinner date with a friend.
Day 339: Thursday morning I went for a run around 8:00 a.m. and it was downright chilly outside. The crisp air made it hard to stop and the slight change in leaves made the scenery even more beautiful. My pre-move nostalgia has officially kicked in. In two weeks we will be suburbanites. Every time I leave my house for a run, walk or ride my heart feels heavy with a sadness of change. The change is a good thing, but I’m allowing myself to feel a loss for the city that I love….and for the stray cat that we have named “Tiger” that greets me outside my apartment after every run.
Day 340: Yesterday Mike and I had some errands to run to get the mortgage application process r0lling (round #2!) and wanted to checkout the progress made on the house. After that, I decided to walk the 2.5 miles into work and bask in the ability to walk almost anywhere. #citylove
Day 341: After work today I decided to take advantage of the afternoon sun and go on an hour-long bike ride. I threw on some Bob Marley radio and rode down the Cherry Creek Trail, trying not to look creepy to other rides while I semi-sing and smile too much. It was just one of those happy, chai tea mornings followed by a sunny ride that makes my soul light up.
I just love following your running blogs!!! And you always make me feel like I’m right there!!
Thank you so much Susan! I hope you’re enjoying some fall runnimg as well!
