Feeling Hopeful!

I had another decent run this morning. Granted, it was only 4 miles, but considering I didn't make it that far on Saturday, I think that's a good sign. It was more humid than I would have liked it to be, but the wind was picking up in advance of the rain, so it was pleasant. I love running on spring mornings.

I also saw my neighbor ladies walking their dogs. You know, the ones who haven't spoken a word to me since their candidate lost the presidential election? I guess the warmer weather and lighter skies have melted their cold and bitter hearts, because I actually got a "good morning" from them.

Giving 16 miles another try this weekend, and I'm looking forward to it.


  1. 'Only' 4 miles...and my current goal is to get to 4 miles (I'm getting closer)!

    I haven't even run 4 miles in almost a month. (Since my half marathon April 7)

    Do you run with ear buds in? I don't and still I'm the one that says good morning to people first. Sometimes I get a reply and sometimes I don't.

  3. I don't run with earbuds when it's dark out, something about it creeps me out. When I do use them, I only use one so that I can still hear what's going on around me. I tend to become kind of oblivious to my surroundings. Probably why I fall a lot :)

  4. Do you have a blog, colleen?

    I never run with earbuds in. Well OK I did one time 3 years ago. I do notice I don't greet other runners as much if they have in earbuds. I guess I assume they can't hear me.

    I have a blog. I thought it was linked somehow with my google+ but maybe not. (my blog is pretty boring and I got behind with pictures so now I'm posting stuff from almost a month ago. I still have about 15 draft posts to insert the pictures too. )
