Last night kicked off my first run of the Clark County Running Club Wednesday night 3 mile summer series runs.
We had rain all day long up until a few hours before the run. Rain + dirt =one muddy path. Everyone’s legs and shoes were splattered and covered in mud. Mine actually aren’t as bad as others.
I made sure to wear my old running shoes just for this reason.
It was a fun run switching from muddy ups and downs to grass and pavement. This run really had it all. I annihilated on the uphill. When I run from my house there’s no way to get away from hills so I’ve learned to love them. My mom’s mantra I use now too of “I love hills!” probably helps too. It seems that if you tell yourself you like them they turn out to be not so bad.
I ran the course in 26 min 14 sec. Great time for me!
My mom made it to the first run last week and shaved 2 whole minutes off of her time (it must be because I was there :))
When I got home I was starved for dinner and had a couple slices of my french sorrel, basil and mushroom quiche I’d defrosted and baked yesterday. Mmmm it was so good and easy.
Any fun muddy run’s you’ve done lately?
I’m off to go swim… something I haven’t done in maybe a month?? Here’s to hoping I didn’t forget how 🙂
