I'm helping with a school competition some of my kids are competing in later today and all day tomorrow, which afforded me a morning run that I didn't have to wake up super early for. My legs were void of that pillars of concrete feeling they had yesterday, which was nice especially given the course I ran climbs uphill for much of the first four miles.
About halfway through the run, a bio break was needed. I was scanning the woods looking for a place where the snow wasn't too deep, when my indirect prayers to the toilet gods were answered in an unexpected way. There, up a little ways along a side dirt road was a green monolith that is a welcome site for any runner when nature calls... a porta pottie. That made my morning. I've been growing a little tired of using snowballs as toilet paper.
I'm hoping I can sneak in a run tomorrow, but that may not really be possible. If not, no biggie. There's always the weekend.
Ran 10.2 miles @ 8:15/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - N/A (forgot to wear my strap, realized this a mile into the run)
~20 degrees, sunny.
Long pants, fleece jacket, long sleeved shirt, short sleeved shirt, refl. vest, beanie, gloves.
