So I went out for my 7 mile run this evening and it was gorgeous! I was able to run in capris and a long sleeve shirt. I spent most of the run re-calibrating my Garmin. It hasn't been as accurate as it was in the past since I switched to my new shoes. I have no idea how long it took me to run those 7 miles today because when you calibrate your Garmin the only thing that shows on the screen is the distance you have run and the option to stop. It was nice not knowing my pace today. The best part of the run was when I went past the bank sign that had the current temperature displayed (60 degrees at 6:00 PM). My legs felt really good again today and most of my muscle tightness and soreness have disappeared. With that being said, I just registered for the St. Malachi 5 Mile Run that takes place this Saturday. I am looking forward to it. Today has been a great day as I also received word today that I will be running the Pittsburgh 1/2 Marathon as a St. Jude's Hero. I am running in memory of Sophie Quayle. Sophie passed away October 6, 2007 from a pediatric brain tumor. To read more about Sophie, visit www.smilesforsophieforever.org. It is my honor to do this for her family and St. Jude's. Of course I have the added bonus of getting to run with Michele "Cuz" again!!
Keep running, you're simply the best, and you inspire me!!
