This was the perfect theme song for the day. I had a long day ahead of me that would include lots of driving around and getting in and out of the car. Running in the morning helps give me energy for days like this. I had every intention of getting my run in this morning before work. No such luck 😦 I woke up exhausted and it was raining. I couldn’t motivate myself through either one. My first stop after leaving the house this morning was at Starbucks. A Grande Pike Place would be my car riding companion. Even though it was raining on and off all day, it didn’t seem to dampen anyone’s mood. LOL! All my clients were happy. The rain kept people off the beach and in their businesses 🙂
Due to the fact I didn’t run yesterday or this morning because of the weather, I was hoping I would get the chance tonight. And as luck would have it, the clouds parted and the sky peeked through just long enough for me to get 30 minutes on the pavement. I ran on the feeder roads along the North End of the Ocean Front. I toke the feeder road to the last light pole before it became Shore Drive. I came back the same way and added a few blocks of sand running on the beach. The beach was wide and empty. I was moving at a decent pace. I had an eclectic blend of music today. My iPod was shuffling all songs in my library. Country, rock, pop: it all worked. I squeezed in about 3 miles.
The Rock N Roll is getting closer. I am feeling ready. I am being careful not to overdue it this close to race day.
A little leg and back discomfort, but a visit to the chiropractor tomorrow should help.
