6.00 Miles in 1:03:58
Mood: Ugly building for an ugly run.
This store is weird. Almost all of Southglenn is earthy toned and feels nice and warm, but then there is the death star that is Z Gallerie. It's the only black facade of the entire complex, and it sticks out like a sore thumb. I'm not sure why they want their store to be black, or why The Streets at Southglenn allowed it, but it does not work well with the rest of the place.
As for this run, I decided to stay close to home. I did so because there was a ton of snow and ice leftover from a massive storm that hit on Wednesday night, and I wasn't sure how clear the roads would be. I also made the unfortunate decision to wear long underwear and an extra sweatshirt because it was 17 degrees when I left. However, almost immediately the sun came out and the temps rose. I ended up feeling super hot and bulky and then got a low blood sugar, and I felt slow the whole time. Plus, I knew my brother was back at my house, as he was visiting for the weekend. I did not enjoy this run much, but I plowed through so that I'd have enough miles to get to 100 for the month. Glad I did it, but it was not the best run of the month. I decided to call it when I got to 6 miles because running with a low blood sugar is miserable, and I had done enough that I didn't need to push myself anymore.
