Saturday's long run report.


I am happy to say, I felt great. I felt like I could run forever. Well not really other wise I would have finished the 15 I was scheduled and not wimped out with only 14. I run a road that is super hilly, I mean Hilly with a capital H.... hell, lets capitalize the entire word.....HILLY.

I like running hills, I always have felt strong running hills, and I really feel they just make you a better, faster, stronger runner. So Sat, I ran this road, we will call it.....HILL road. I ran 7 out and 7 back. The town I live in does not have many roads with a shoulder of any kind. So I pick this road because the only thing out there are horse farms. (I know, talk about GORGEOUS) and there is not a lot of traffic. I have kind of fallen in love with this route. I would run it everyday if I could. I am going to copy NikeMom and the next time I run this route I am going to take my cute, pink camera and takes some pictures for you.


Anyways, I am super happy I prayed for great weather. It was 31 degrees when I left the house but 39 when I got home. I ended up shedding my top layer, and my gloves. The sun was out and shinning so bright, no rain, no snow and just a touch of a breeze. It was perfect.


14 miles in 2:03....... I was happy with that, considering all of my HILLS.

Great job on the run. I like running hills too. I think they help make you a stronger runner. You'll have to take pictures next time you go out.

Ahhh... Horse Farms! I sometimes run on a road that has two colts fenced in along the road and when they take off and play when I come scooting by it is such a powerful thing. Great run by the way! Especially on a hilly road.

I would love to see some pics... wish I could run in 'farm country' more often. These residential streets get so BORING (all capitals)!

Awesome job on your run - speedy too!
