First run after marathon
I thought about going for a light jog on Halloween, but had too many other things going on. Today was my first run post marathon. I ran 4.18 miles and it felt good! My original goal was 4 miles. When I realized it would be completely dark at 1 mile, I almost turned around to go back home for a total of 2 miles. But the 1 mile mark was near the high school and I saw lights on at the football field/track. I took a chance and jogged to the field. They were painting stripes on the field for an upcoming game and several people were walking around the track, so I ran 6 laps around the brightly lit track (to meet my goal distance) and then returned home. Great run!
