Five Hundred Eighty
January 24, 2017
7.98 Miles in 1:22:47
Soundtrack: Sam Roberts Band "TerraForm" / Sara Watkins "Young In All The Wrong Ways" / The Long Winters "Putting The Days To Bed"
While 10:22 miles are not fast, this was the most encouraging run I've had in awhile. I was able to keep a good pace, run on some of my favorite trails, and most importantly...my ribcage wasn't screaming in pain. I managed nearly eight miles and felt good the whole way through, and it seems as if my 100 mile month streak (currently at 36 months and hopefully soon to be at 37) still has hope to continue.
In addition to feeling good physically on this run, I was listening to some pretty great music and was treated to a lovely sunrise, and also some pretty views including this photo a little after sunrise in which the morning sun powered through trees and the windmill at Ketring Park. The sun was very bright, and I lowered the light levels to let very little else through besides the sun peeking through, which is why this photo seems so dark despite it being a pretty bright morning. I thought the effect looked pretty great, and was happy with how the pictured turned out.
