I figured I'd make the most of my time in Dallas by trying to get back into running. Living in a neighborhood really helps- I can just run around the shaded sidewalks and whenever I get tired, home is always less than half a mile away. I wanted to run for 5 miles, but the both the hot weather and the fact that I haven't run since May 12th really took a toll.
This morning's jog was pretty slow at a 10'35" pace (granted, it was 80 degrees and I hadn't eaten anything) was completed right after my dad taught me how to drive a stick shift...! I snapped a quick picture of us driving to the parking lot in the sunrise - it was so nice to be out early and feel the nice breeze before the heat of the day caught up with us.
Verdict: About time I learned how to drive, eh? :) In all honesty, driving a standard isn't so bad, but it takes quite a while to get used to the mechanics of it. The car lurched and I stalled it numerous times before I really got the hang of it. Ah well. I drove home, though, which I think is a victory!
Hope everybody is enjoying the summery weather!
