Yesterday was the 5th week since we moved so I celebrated with my first run here this morning. I’ve been working out at home since the gym is more than 20 minutes away and there’s no good childcare option. It’s been a big change from my fancy club gym back in CO but I haven’t missed it much and it’s nice to get my workout done and move on with my day. I have missed running but at the same time I haven’t misse it at all. But since I love to cook and eat I figured it better give it a go!
I did three miles. It was so nice and peaceful. Not a single car…it was a balmy 56 degrees. We were at 6800 feet in CO so the 7400 ft elevation didn’t bother me at all. The runner in me was so happy and I’m really glad I decided to do it. I think this is going to be my Saturday morning thing as long as the weather lets me. I did decide that I need to carry pepper spray in case a dog runs up on me. A neighbors big Newfoundland barked at me from a distance. Thankfully that dog has camped out at my house before so I know it’s harmless or I would have been scared of that giant beast.
Have I mentioned how much I love the wide open space here?!
