A good run

Just back from my run. I went a little later than usual, when it was dark, but still very nice out. It was a good run. I don’t know if it’s the fact that I had a bowl of pasta about 2 hours ago, or psychological, but I felt like I had a lot of energy and was running strongly. I may be ready to try running a little more than a mile. I’ll see how I feel on Thursday.

The air was really fresh and smelled like newly mown grass, which may have helped put a pep in my step. There was a bright, full moon at too, and that helped as well. In any case, it felt really good. I did a really fine sprint at the very end, the whole length of my block, steadily building up speed until I was running flat out, about as fast as I can, which, for a 34 year-old, I might say, is pretty darn fast.

Endorphines have definitely kicked in.

And the news shoes were great!
