Yes! I'm refreshed. Actually I don't think that I will subject myself to the treadmill if I don't have to. Today I ran with my running buddy Abby OUTSIDE (YEAH!) in her hood. It felt good, not like a chore, was a good run, and good conversations always pass the time quickly. I love running with people, and the conversations are always good, at least for me - I always feel like whatever is on my mind flows out easily when running. This was a path that we ran to near Philly (probably considered in philly, but a part of it) that Abby calls "Valley Green" and we were able to run from her house, which was a super bonus! We got in 10 miles which was great. It was a good start to the mini holiday weekend which will be spent at the beach with my siblings and their friends. Hopefully this will start a series of outdoor runs for me, and no more blah crappy treadmill runs. I feel happy (I'm picturing a chorus of I FEEL PRETTY from an Adam Sandler movie).

After that I had to get home and change quickly and go to the doctor and I realized when I got home that I looked a mess. Oh well!!! Let the runner's high carry through the day.

Have a great weekend everyone!
