It was the farthest one my running partners had ever run. Woo hoo!
And today - it's cold. Really cold. I initially intended to run my prescribed 5 miles inside on the treadmill, but I just couldn't do it before work. I'm not feeling the treadmill at all these days. Which meant I needed to run outside. Between shows. During the super short break. Always a challenge. I started with my running pants under my jeans and made a quick top change at intermission. Rip off the jeans during the second courtroom at the calling desk, restore the sneaks during graduation, grab my gloves and speaker hat after the "see you at 6:30" announcement and I'm out the door. 4:23pm start - not bad. Ran up 7th Ave. to the park and did two lower loops plus a bit before heading back down 6th Ave. 23 degrees on the CNN billboard. My legs were a bit chilly and it took about ten minutes to warm up my lungs. But I got in 5.27 miles and even survived the shower in the nasty ladies room backstage.
Did I mention I'm running a half marathon next Sunday? :)
