I am just going to say it. I have been doing some things that seen individually seem odd for me. For example…I get really excited about buying shoes, I am checking out a leather bag, and wear loud colors so people notice me. Now, it would seem that I am would be changing my lifestyle in more than one way, but let me explain. I buy running shoes and I like having options. It is nice to decide how I want the ground to feel under my feet. Sometimes you feel that the trail is going to be spongier or harder and you account for the difference. I am looking at purchasing a leather bag. Well its one of those purchases that will happen when I graduate from law school. The bag I like (2 actually) are the backpack and the briefcase from saddleback leather co. I like their products and I like the quality. The loud clothes? I am starting school in a week so hitting the road for a run at 10 or 11 at night is going to mean I have to look radioactive to hopefully avoid being tagged by shinny bumper.
I am feeling better, my mood is changing and I sense that I am getting over whatever winter spell I was on the last few weeks. I have a fartlek run today, 5k pace, 40 min with up ticks for 1-3 minutes intertwined in there. I think it will be a good run, cold, but good. I just want to get outside and feel the crisp air again. I know these next few days are priceless, daylight running is going to be a weekend thing starting next week.
