I was going to continue my vacation posts today with Day 4, but I have something better to share with you...
I ran 8 miles this morning!
Eight. Ocho. Huit.
That is my personal distance record.
I am so excited, but my hamstrings are very angry.
It was tough. The weather was okay, but much more humid than last week when I ran 6, but it was fairly cool.
My route took me all over downtown Lake Charles and gave me a new appreciation for this city. I went through some neighborhoods with turn of the century homes and a lot of craftsman style and 1920's bungalows. Craftsman is my favorite style of home. I think in my next life I will be an architect. Or a stewardess on a yacht. Or pastry chef.
Someone needs to invent a chip to put in your brain or eyes and when you blink 3 times fast it takes a picture of what you see. That way, I could share all the sights (especially all the fall pumpkins and mums on the stoops of these adorable bungalows) along my run with you. Because God knows I can't run and take pics. I can barely run and not trip and fall.
My run left me with hamstring tightness and a heinous blister on the arch of my left foot. I'm going to go ahead and take the blame for the blister, because I wore crappy socks due to the fact that I was too lazy to do laundry.
Another reason I'm excited....
Satsumas are officially in season!
I only had 2 ripe enough to pick, but in a few days, I will have a boat load.
I'm also excited because my parents donated some patio furniture to me. Now I can blog while I sit outside with Lola (which I am doing right now).
I'm off to shower (no I still haven't had a post-run shower. ewww!) and foam roll.
What are you excited about on this gorgeous fall Saturday?
