Oh, the sights, smells, and sounds
I went for a run yesterday and it was beautiful. While out, I kept thinking that I couldn't wait to get back and blog about it. I'm in Florida with my husband for a conference. While he's in class, I get to hang out. I went for a 10 mile run and it was wonderful. I think a 10 mile run here is equal to a 5 or 6 mile in Utah. There of course are not hills for me to run (no, that's really not a complaint) and elevation is 0, but I still carried my butt 10 miles. The sunshine, the light breeze on my face (and it wasn't coming from the fan of a treadmill), the sound of leaves on the street, the smell of freshly cut grass, the palm trees and the flowers. I just took it all in because I know I'm going home to SNOW! My husband doesn't run so he doesn't really understand how much of a joy that run was. Well, thanks for letting me share my run with you all. I'm getting so nervous for this race. Every time I log on I get butterflies in my stomach! Can't wait!! See you all soon.
