Six Hundred Thirty-Eight
May 18, 2017
7.74 Miles in 1:17:25
Mood: Sloppy wet
Soundtrack: Fitz and the Tantrums "Fitz and the Tantrums" / Fall of the House of Sunshine
It pretty much never stopped snowing giant snowflakes as I ran this morning. It wasn't deep of winter cold snow that will stick around for weeks. It was that sloppy wet spring snow that disappears at the first sign of the sun. This is the best kind of snow, because it goes away quickly, but when you're running in it as it falls, you're going to get very wet. Coincidentally...I was VERY wet.
I might have skipped out on running altogether, as the weather was not even remotely pleasant for running through, but I hadn't run since Sunday and this was the first opportunity this week to get out there, so a combination of determination to reach my monthly goal yet again mixed with a bit of withdrawal after not getting out there for several days got me to drag myself into the slop.
I decided rather than run far away from home and risk the weather intensifying, I would stay at the Streets at Southglenn and just run loops. This made it easy to abandon the endeavor if need be, and allowed me to load up on Pokemon supplies, so I guess I was making the best of a sloppy situation. It wasn't my favorite run ever, but in the end I had miles and Pokeballs, so I was happy.
