8.00 Miles in 1:18:10
Mood: Milk Man-ish
Soundtrack: The Fall of the House of Sunshine / 99% Invisible / The Bill Simmons Podcast
The night before this run, I had said that I'd go to the grocery store to get us some more milk because it had been mentioned that we were running out. So when I went to have my cereal this morning and realized that we were dangerously short and I had done nothing to rectify the shortage, I knew how I was going to start my run.
So yes, the first two miles of my run were a jaunt down to the grocery store and back. The run down was pretty easy, but the way back was tough because it turns out it's hard to run while lugging a gallon of milk.
After making my dairy delivery back home, I decided to spend a little quality time with the Highline Canal. I began that section of my run by going over a brand new bridge. This wasn't the first time I had used this bridge, but it was the first time I had used it since it had been opened. Previously, I had gone over it a few times after stepping around a sign because the bridge was mostly complete except for the sidewalk approaching it. Today was the first time I had used it without crossing yellow tape, so that was nice.
After two straight runs of under four miles, it was nice to get in a nice long run. I felt pretty good this morning, and I ran what seemed a much more appropriate distance of eight miles. Today's photo is one of many which I took of pink trees which are all over the place right now, as we are right in their sweet spot of early April.
