Feeling Great

Today was the first Sunday since early March, which I was not working, the kids were in school or I was not away on business.  The month of May is going great. I have run the first 4 days for a total of 15 miles. I was planning on doing 5 miles today just to make an even 20 for the month.  

After my wife got back from taking the older kids to school, she came in and said the baby was going to go down for a nap soon.  That was fine, I decided to get ready and head out.  Once I got out there, the temperature was ideal for a run.  It was blue skies and sunny with an air temperature of about 80-85 degrees.  There was a cool wind blowing. 

I started out with the intent of 5 miles.  When I arrived to one of my turn off points, I turned. I have not done this route since before I left on my trip.  I kept going.   Once I got to the point, where it would either do 5 or 6 miles, I decided to go for 6.  

I finished my water and stopped at one of the water fountains at a nearby park to reload.  I continued on. I decided to go for it and turned to make sure I completed 7 miles before I arrived home.  It felt great.
