autumn weather

I ran at the same nearby park as yesterday. I wasn’t trying but I matched my time from yesterday exactly! It feels so nice to have the autumn weather rolling in. It’s so much easier to run when it’s cold than when it’s hot. Plus, with the weather cooling off, I don’t have to worry so much about getting out of bed early in the morning to run while the sun is still down, or wearing reflective gear so that I can be SAFE when I’m running while the sun is still down!

In fact, I have to confess that it’s a bit intimidating to me to run on the streets, not on a treadmill or at a park. Something about just being a runner… it’s a total mental thing. Of course there’s the safety and security- you have to watch for cars and other people. But I guess more than that, it’s just different. But that’s okay, I’ll do that too.

Today, I ran 3 miles in 39 minutes.

One thought on “autumn weather”

  1. Wow, it is so great that you have motivated yourself to run even though you are not a runner … and three miles in 39 minutes is great! I really, really despise running (or really any type of exercise haha), but I find your success is motivating ME to get my butt to the gym and on the treadmill ;). Just out of curiosity, have you been losing a lot of weight since you started running? This is an amazing accomplishment!!
