Last night I had the pleasure of meeting up with the Running Blog Family’s Jessica, who was in town for a few days. After she gave me a few lessons on how to properly use Carmina, my car Garmin, we settled at a nice Tex-Mex restaurant. We had a great dinner and we jumped right into conversation just like we had known each other for years. Isn’t it great that runners never get tired of talking about running! I guess that’s why we’re all bloggers too. Jessica is just as charming and beautiful as you would image she’d be – AND she drinks margaritas like a professional – how awesome is that!?! I can’t wait for her next visit.
I wasn’t sure if I’d be up for running this morning since I didn’t get home until late. And by late I mean 9:40 pm. I’m a wimp, I know it. I did, however, manage to get myself out of bed at 4:30 am, and after a cup of coffee, head out for my six-mile run. And for the first time in a really long time, I had a great run. I wasn’t fast, but I didn’t feel like I was going to die every step of the way. I actually felt like a runner again, like Runner Susan. It’s good to feel like myself again. I’ve missed me. It’s amazing how one good run can really lift your spirits. I can only hope that feeling sticks around for a while.
