Night Time Long Run!

This was a very eventful run! It started out beautiful! We were running down by the bay and the water was gorgeous. It was a little hot at first but started cooling off about halfway in. We saw a baby snake (YIKES) and that made us pick up the pace for a while! Also once it started getting dark it was PITCH BLACK! That was a little scary. My knees are a little achy because the route was concrete most of the way. But the best news is that this is the best run I've ever had on this route! There's a steady hill the last half a mile that kills me...I always have to walk. But not tonight!!! Woo Hoo!!!!

My stats: 11.25 miles in 2:11:04 at an average pace of 11:39!

Angie, Paige, and me before our run!


I will say...I prefer my 4:45 AM runs that start out dark but end with the sun rising. I REALLY don't like not being able to see where I am stepping...especially after seeing a snake!!! We ended the night with a visit to Waffle House! We had a great time eating and laughing!

Here's Paige with her "side" of pickles! They brought her out a plate full of pickles...we thought it was hilarious! I'm thinking we were a little delirious after running 11 miles lol!


Now...ready for bed! Night!
