The Best Runs . . .

. . . sometimes come on days when you didn’t feel like running.

Been battling a cold. Did quad strengthening exercises yesterday, so legs felt weak. Went to bed too late last night and was too tired when the alarm went off at 5:15 this morning. But, I know how I feel after two days off, so not running wasn’t an option. It was either get out the door (Runner’s Commandment #1: Walking out the door is often the hardest part of a run. ) and do it, or run during the kids’ naps, which meant getting up at 5:15 anyway to grade papers on the computer. So . . . I decided to get up and do a short run on tired legs. Quick 4. Well, I felt great. And fast. Turned into a pretty fast 7 miles. Got in a great sprint at the end.
