I am thinking that eight is too late to run. It took me a little while to get out of bed and ready to run and by the time I did, it was after 8:00 a.m. and it just felt so warm outside. The sun was so far overhead and bright, I was wishing I was running in sunglasses. And I got hot right away. I much rather run in cool morning weather, when you start running feeling chilly and warm up over the course of the run.
New York City provides a beautiful backdrop to run in and lots of interesting things to look at to make the time go by.
I don’t run with music so it’s nice to be distracted by the sound of dogs barking or people talking, and I hear the men who stand on the streets, even at that early hour on a. Sunday morning, and offer suggestions on your running form and request invitations for the next run.
You can choose to be annoyed by it or you can accept that this is par for the course and just keep running. I choose the latter.
This dog was just standing on its leash, barking as though he was begging me to take his picture.
Remember my post about there being signs everywhere. Click here to read that post from May 1. I was reminded of that post when I saw this sign that is encouraging everyone to run.
Or maybe they’re using running to get people to sign up with their website so they can sell advertising, under the guise that they will be supporting a charity at the same time. Of maybe they are just doing a good thing. Whatever the reason, running is ALWAYS a good idea.
Central Park at its best is Central Park during a race. Today’s NYRR-sponsored race cut across my exit point so I ran back up the hill I just came down.
Altogether 3.5 miles of running and all the time my mind kept going over the phrase. 8 is too late. So the next time I run, I’ll try to get out before 7 to take advantage of the cooler weather.
I haven’t been getting all my G-BOMBS everyday but I do the best I can when I can because the overall picture is most important.
Last nights salad was mixed greens, diced grilled chicken breast, cucumber slices and red onion to which I added roasted cashews, a tablespoon of chia seeds and ranch dressing.
This morning when I woke up, I was regretting eating the grilled chicken so late at night but glad I was able to run it off… Or so I told myself.
Today, I want to make sure I get all my G-BOMBS – Greens, Beans, Onions, Mushrooms, Berries and Seeds.
This lunch salad is my attempt to work on making that goal.
Eat Right, Live Right, RUNWRIGHT!
