I love running down our road. There is hardly ever any traffic. I only had one car pass me the entire time I was out. It's very peaceful. The cows tend to look at me like I've lost my mind as I run by. I wish I could take my camera along to show y'all what it's like. But I would never get my running done then. Would be spending all my time taking pictures!
The jog was not easy. But I knew I needed to get out on the road. It's a lot different then jogging on a treadmill. I also haven't been running since all the problems with my Achilles. But I'm happy to say it didn't bother me at all.
I took my Ipod shuffle with me today. I usually don't listen to music when I run out here. I want to be able to hear if a vehicle is approaching. But today I decided I would take my life into my own hands. I wore it but had it set very low. Plus the wind was blowing so hard that I couldn't hear a car coming if I wanted to. And I had my road ID bracelet on. I bought it several years back when I was running a lot. It has my name and emergency contact information on it. Just in case someone does wipe me out or they find me laid out on the road! If you run, I suggest you get one.
So here is what I looked like upon my return home...
Now I just need to work on running another 4 or so hours in addition to the 30 mins!
