9 miles

Today I ran 9 (.07) miles!  Which, according to my aunt is "exactly what you needed to do today."  Finally, I did exactly what I needed to do.  I feel like I keep setting out with the best of intentions and not quite making it for various reasons.

My watch died after 6 miles, but I had the foresight to start the running app on my phone when I saw how low my watch battery was.  

I just ran on the bike path because I decided that making it to 9 miles was more important that running up hills.  Given that it was hot (65+ degrees) and there was very little shade, I felt pretty good.  I felt bad for Kiva because she is so furry...and black, and I'm sure she was wondering why I was trying to kill her.  Good thing I taught her the most useful skill of drinking from my CamelBak!

My average pace was 12:06/mi, which I am more than ok with because I was going for distance not time (especially since it was hot, I was not looking to break any speed records).  

When I got home, I lay down on the floor and promptly got attacked...

Hopefully I'll be able to walk when I get to work tomorrow!
