Sadly, I could not get out to run with the crew this afternoon because of work so I decided to run my 6.66 miles at 5 am this morning. Felt pretty good after hill repeats last night with the WHC. Got up and dressed this morning in costume to run with my inner devil, complete with horns, red hair, and an appropriately numbered bib. Then I went outside not realizing it was raining. Since I was up and ready, I decided a morning rain run was appropriate. I had laid out a basic loop through Lindley Park and Sunset Hills and started out. The first mile or so was relatively dry with no problems. However, about 2 miles in, the bottom decided to fall. My costume fell to pieces. My paper bib disintegrated while my horns slid out and my red hair decided to run down my face and back. I ran the remaining miles in perfect misery (not really) throughout the neighborhood. The course was a bit hilly, but not too bad. Will run most of it again sometime in the future. I got home after running 6.66 miles in honor of National Running Day on 6/6 finishing in about 65 minutes (so close to 66 minutes). I posted the picture below to the 12athon page and later received my 7.66 points for the run today. Will say that running before working both jobs is a plus to running after. All in all, a great two days running even though I missed running with the WHC downtown. But there’s always next time!
