You know how I said to prepare for the onslaught of "proof of running" photos? Yeah, well this morning I decided it was time to begin said onslaught. One problem--I've been running in the morning which means that I look super lovely (super lovely is code for puffy-eyed and zit-faced).
But alas, I am shameless so I will post these pictures anyway. Because, hey, I want to show my proof of running 3 miles!
I'd originally been super stoked about wearing my Top of Utah Marathon tech tee for the first time, but the wind proved a bit too chilly for this breathable shirt. Sad. :( It will get its glory moment someday soon.
In any case, 3 miles = done. That's two runs this week for those of you counting (I know I am). Not a bad way to spend my Pi Day. It was pretty windy out, but that just gave me something to pay attention to. One thing I wasn't paying attention to was the deer that came outta nowhere and nearly ran right into me. I was in the middle of a freaking neighborhood! Unexpected deer was unexpected!
|Like this. But only one deer.|
Bambi was at a full-on sprint. I was grateful that I wasn't running that particular mile any faster I would've totally been on a collision course. Let's just say I was definitely awake from that moment on...
Fun fact: I slept for 11-something hours last night. Oh yessssss. It was LOVELY. I've been absolutely zonked this entire week and just couldn't seem to catch up, so I decided to just give into the sleepies when they called. And they called at 6 pm last night (or is that late afternoon?). In any case, I listened. And woke up for my run around 5ish in the morning. It was fantastic and I don't even feel bad about it. I highly recommend it to any of you considering it. 5 stars all around.
Have any of you encountered something unexpected on a run? Tell me about it in the comments!
