My Kind of November Running

What a way to ring in November! I headed out the door in shorts, a short sleeve shirt and of course, sunglasses! This was at 8:55 am on November 1st and my choice of attire was ideal!

My intentions were to run my Canadian Tire route, but as I motored on, I felt strong in the morning sunshine so decided to continue past the turn-a-round point and head down into the valley. I heard the traffic in the distance but it was masked by the sound of my foot steps and steady comfortable breathing. Everything was in sync! I love it when this happens!

Going down into the valley, I knew I had to come up out of the valley but I wasn't phased by that today! This is a hill that I have yet to be able to bike all the way up! This morning, I beat the hill...keeping a steady slow pace, keeping my mind on getting to the top...I made it there, still feeling strong at the top I then carried on home!

My work is done, now I have the rest of the day ahead of me!

  1. Hmm, November 1st here in Vancouver is overcast, not sunny. I'm jealous - but I do see a bright spot in the sky over yonder... Good for you for getting the run done early so you can enjoy such a nice day!
