I have discovered a new favorite running time: evening. I've usually run after work, but today I ran in the dark. Now, I wasn't necessarily IN the dark as I was wearing my husband's caving headlamp. I kinda liked not knowing how far I had gone or how far I still needed to run I just knew I was running. I had to. Today was a tough day and I needed to clear my mind of all the toxins floating around. I didn't complete my 5K like I had planned b/c my calf was cramping and I had just read an article about a runner who pushed past the point of pain and is now in rehab. That's not a risk I'm willing to take right now ESPECIALLY with mere weeks until the half. Speaking of, I'm nervous as hell! My knee might explode, but I'm GOING TO CROSS THAT FINISH LINE!!! Until Saturday! Oh!!! Did I mention that I'm running my first "official" 5K on Saturday? I'm SUPER pumped!
