Day of Rest

Hello, friends and Happy Sunday!  Are you using it as a day of rest?  We are!  Well, sorta;-)

I had my alarm set for 530am so I could leave on my long run at 6 trying to beat the heat and humidity that IS Southeast Missouri summers!  I headed out with the sun just coming up and a nice breeze blowing.  I met my in-laws who were leaving to go see our nephew (their grandson), Cody, get on the bus to head to the Marine Corps for basic training.  We are SO proud of him for the decision he has made to serve our country and pray for his safety and his strength.  Here is a pic from his goodbye party, on July 4 with his Mama, Bonnie, Jack’s sister:bonnieandcody 

Anyway, I kinda got off track, but I met my in-laws on their way out and only saw another 3 cars my whole run.  I LOVE that.  The feeling that I am accomplishing so much before most people are even out of bed is awesome!  Hehe;-) 

The details of this morning’s “accomplishment” are:

DISTANCE: 10.00 MILES
TIME: 1:48:52

I’m tellin’ ya, the heat, humidity, and hills are killllllerrrrr…  I am so anxious to get on pavement and flatter ground for a long run so I can make sure that I haven’t totally lost my speed!  I’m great on the TM, but here at the cabin with hills and the gravel road aren’t doing anything for my times.  But it was a great 10 miles.  At the end I was a sweaty beast, literally soaked from all the sweat, ewwwww….10milepostrun

But when you get to do this after your run, it makes it EVEN BETTER!!  Love, love, love sitting out on the deck and cooling off when I’m done.  Ahhhhh, a great start to the week!10mileriver

Enjoy the rest of your day of rest, friends!

xoxo

Ahhhhhh........you're at my happy place. Well, at least I think it would be my happy place from the pics I've seen over the last year or so. Actually, I am certain it would be incredible. Forget us meeting up in Texas - I'm just going to crash your party at the cabin sometime!
