Happy 4th of July.
Celebrate. Enjoy and be safe.
I don't have plans.
I went running with my group, but didn't feel it, at all, this morning. It was humid and it makes a huge difference in the running world, for me. I felt like I was running through sludge. I was irritable and affected by the elements. Yuck!
It is over and I feel better. I did it and now I can relax.
I think I will head up to the Arts Festival for a bit and coffee. I am ready for an excellent cup of Peet's coffee. I am dreaming of it. I can taste it. I can smell it. I am in heaven. Coffee is a must.
In other news...I signed up for the Georgetown Idaho Springs Half Marathon. Team in Training sent me an e-mail about it. The 1/2 marathon is in a month. I feel it will be a good trial run of long distance for me. I suppose it will be a great indicator of if I can handle the full or if I should stick with the 1/2. After today's outing, I think I can barely do a 10k. It was pathetic. I just wasn't into it, today. We ran 8 miles. I am pretty sure and the Goddess and Jamie were supportive of my stops and talked me through it. I still haven't named Jamie, but it is coming. She is so calm and laid back while running, too.
My friends have plans of drinking and debauchery. Of course I enjoy this, but I am working, early, tomorrow morning and want to be able to enjoy some time off. I might sleep the day away....
