One Hundred Seventy-Nine
October 28, 2014
8.49 Miles in 1:20:06
Mood: Strong like bull and enjoying the final days of Halloween whimsy.
Soundtrack: The BS Report / The Walking Deadcast / 99% Invisible
I have pretty much given up on predicting how my body will react on a run. Some days I have plenty of rest and have been eating well and I feel like I'm dragging, other times I have had trouble sleeping the night before, eat a brownie an hour before running, and I feel strong like bull. This particular outing I felt amazing, this despite not taking the greatest care of myself in the previous 24 hours. (Halloween candy is everywhere, man.) Perhaps eating Twix is the secret to a great run?
Sorry for the preponderance of Halloween decoration pictures the past few weeks, but I keep coming across decorations that surprise and delight me. While I'm not a big fan of scary looking decor that can be found in a lot of places these days, these oddly shaped skeletons and grouchy looking ghosts that I keep posting tickle a certain whimsical bone in me that I can't help but sharing on the blog. We're nearly to the end of this season, so the opportunities to collect these pics will soon be gone, and I'm making hay while the spooky sun shines.
One last thing about my route...the map kind of looks like a handgun. Don't think that it means anything significant, but it's something I noticed.
