So, sad (not really) news. I did not get to run in Glen’s Garden Market Free 5k last night because traffic was unpleasant. Some people parked in a lane that you are not supposed to park in during rush hour, so my bus had to do some finagling. While I was sad to miss this, as I was pretty pumped, I still got to participate in an impromptu run with my boyfriend–he was nearby and took pity on me and nicely offered to run with me. So kind.
We took a two-mile loop, which went by fast. I always feel that running goes by so much more quickly in the city. Moving block by block helps to break up the monotony that I sometimes feel when running. Also, up until yesterday I would have told you that I do not like talking while I run. However, last night I tried it and I loved it. It just made the run go by so much more quickly. I think I just blabbed a lot while I ran… I’m sure nothing meaningful came out of my mouth…but I think it could be something that I get used to every once in a while.
