I was going to wait a week after Columbus half to run again, but I was feeling the urge, so I ran 5 miles this morning. I even decided to head out to my favorite bike trail to run – which ended up being a slightly dangerous idea! I had a flashy light on, but I didn’t have any sort of light to illuminate the street in front of me, so by the time I had gotten out of my neighborhood, I was starting to get a bit worried that I could face plant in the dark! Luckily that did not happen, but I did run through a busy section of road with not a lot of shoulder space. Eek. Will be taking along a headlamp again for sure!
Even though I wasn’t going as fast as I thought I might, I was loving the temps and the lack of humidity dragging me down made my run pretty awesome! I even wore my new Columbus shirt and it gets the thumbs up for running, in addition to being great casual wear.
This week I also welcomed a new color of shoes into my running shoe collection…. blue/purple!!! I thought they would pair quite well with my new Run Toledo singlet. I don’t think I will be switched over to a blue scheme, but it is a fun change.
This doesn’t even include the duplicate shoes I have. I think I have 2 pairs of the pink and purple Newtons in my rotation right now.
Another exciting thing happening this week is that my office at work is moving. We are moving to a different building!! I have been in my old building for a super long time. I think I was pregnant with Zachary when we moved in there. So yeah, like 13 years ago. I spent the last week packing up all of my crap. My space looks terrible because it was a temporary location until we found a new building. I was in the process of packing.
I vow right now to make my new space MUCH nicer looking and purge a lot of stuff that I have accumulated over the many years I’ve worked at my job. This is another fresh start and I’m looking forward to it. Monday’s task will be to work through this pile of stuff.
Even though that view of my new desk isn’t that exciting, the view from my desk is quite pretty! Tons of windows and light. AND, the mall and a bike path & metropark are all within 2 miles of our building. Sweet!
My new building is so close to my house, I’m going to ride my bike there on Monday. It’s only 3 miles away!! I would run… but then I’d have to run back home after work. And what would I do with my work clothes and lunch bag? I would really have to prepare ahead of time for that, so I’ll give cycling a try instead.
Not sure that I’ll get around to another post this weekend, but I’ll let you see what my new space ends up looking like! I will also be working packet pickup for Rock’tober Racing for Recovery 10K & 5K Friday afternoon. Get this, the packet pickup will be DRIVE THROUGH! It’s a new concept, so hopefully it goes well. If you drive through on Friday, say Hi!!
