Last night I ran 5 miles at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena.
I was only going to run 4 miles but then something happened at around mile 2 – I hit my stride.
And I just kept running.
It was a nice feeling. Running in between pockets of light and shadow. Kanye West’s “Power” blasting in my ears. The cool night air on my face.
I think I’m starting to prefer outdoor night runs to running on the treadmills first thing in the morning. Maybe I’m just feeling good about myself because I got through those five miles. Maybe I’m just in the mood to change things up a bit while I continue on this fitness journey. Whose to say.
Anyway, it’s a little less than a month before my birthday. I’m trying to reach a specific goal and come May 14th I will let you know if I reached it. Right now I’m excited because I’m starting a 10 Day Gluten Free Challenge. Today is officially Day 1. If all goes well I may extend it to 30 Days. Which means no beer for 30 Days…Eep!
But I’m excited. I had fun today shopping for gluten free food products. I tried Gluten Free pasta tonight for the first time and I really liked it. So..yeah…let’s see how this goes.
