I started my run with my dog for 1 warm-up mile, dropped him off, and then started to run around the neighborhood. The streets are set up nicely so I could run up and down each street but not have to go too far away from my house, so if I started to feel bad, I was always about .5 miles away from my house. It made it really convenient!
It was a great running day, about 52 degrees, and I felt awesome!!
|Taken around mile 4.25, contemplating going home... NOPE!|
|I ended up running until the sun set!|
|Taken at mile 9.25 - So excited that I was going to beat my goal!!|
I was so happy that I got the even 900 miles for the 2013 year (though now that I think about it, I didn't track The Sweater Dash 5K, so technically I ran 903.1... but at least it's still over 900!!), and that after weeks of not running over 5 miles, I could tackle double digits at all. I hadn't run over 5 miles since the half marathon!
It felt so great to end 2013 on that note. The only thing is, I was SO incredibly sore afterwards that I'm not sure if I'll be able to run at all on the 1st! Ah well. Better to end the year on a high note, I think!
That night, we went to a New Year's Eve party at our friend's house.
Hope you had a great New Year's Eve!!
