Dear Runner Lovers,
Flying home on Thursday night was fantastic. It was funny, because there are no direct flights to Syracuse, and at the last-minute I decided to come home and not go somewhere else...because I miss my sisters... so my connecting flight was in DC. Usually, I just fly into one of the airports in NYC, but it was fun flying to our nations capital. Everything was lit up at night, very cool. I had not been there since nationals for lacrosse, a few summers back. Maybe over this summer, I can explore more than the airport in DC, that sounds like a good sister adventure. 😄
I finally arrived home at 3am, and then at 8am, my mom woke me up with my little Chihuahua because she was scratching at my bedroom door! So, I hugged my puppy for a little bit before going on a fifteen mile run. Normally, Friday is an easy day but I missed being home and decided to run all through my town. 😅💕👣
My first mile was 6:15, and my tempo stayed around there for like 5ish.... Then I stopped looking at my watch and enjoyed the scenery! I'm not always big on timing myself, it goes back to my cross-country days. Coach always said not to use a stopwatch, he always wanted us to race and not think about our times... Hahah just figure out how to beat the person in front of you🙃. I love my watch, just sometimes I do not dare look... you cannot PR everyday and I would be miserable if I always ran for time! Do you always time yourself!?
Today, was the Shamrock run here in Syracuse NY! 4 very hilly miles! Then, everyone runs over to the Blarney Stone for Bloody Mary's (so delicious we dreamed about them)! We also, were watching the SU men's basketball game!! 😋☘👣🏅😃🍀🍀🍀🍀
TOO MUCH FUN!!!
I hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend! xoxo
That Pretty Runner
