Double Digits

I finally got back over ten miles. We came down to Long Island for a family party so I made sure to bring my gear.  Some times you just need to escape for a couple hours and hit the roads.   The weather was supposed to be warm so I was looking forward to that as well. Unfortunately the forecast was a bit off and it wasn't as warm as I had hoped.

It still turned out to be a good run. I haven't done more that six in a so I was interested to see how ten went. I ran along Hempstead Lake in the woods and it was quite nice. The area is nothing special but the run was relaxing and consistent. Very happy I got out before the rain and got in some fun.

Of course I then came back to my kid screaming and fighting with his cousin. I need to get up to twenty milers soon so I can plan one of those next time I'm in NY.   Three hours of nothing but inner contemplation and fresh air. Aaahh, bliss.


  1. Congrats! Glad to hear it's going well!

  2. Yeah!! Glad to hear it went well.

  3. I know about kids fighting!!! When my kids fight I tell them "mom is going to work right now." That usually last a few minutes of peace and quite. I'm glad you enjoyed your run!!! Hope to run with you soon.
