My first adventure

A fun thing happened tonight as a hard choice turned into a fun adventure. As evening approached, I was face with either going to watch 2 hours of kids' soccer practice or go for a run. I really wanted to go to soccer practice but I really wanted to run. Torn between two love's. So, I had a wild idea. I actually ran to soccer practice. DW was already there and I told her I would be over when I got home and changes. Then about 48 minutes later, I pulled into the parking lot, not in my car, but under the power of my own two feet.

I didn't know which route to take. Nothing was planned ahead of time. I just thought I'd run to practice. Simple as that. Had a great time and made it for the last 40 minutes of practice.

All I'll say is it was about 3.2 miles. I averaged under 15:00 min/mile. Very easy effort. It was actually cooler than it has been. Had a blast.

Vi,
Next time you run to Memorial Park from the house to run at Memorial Park, come by and get me.

Riding on your back will save me running 2 miles.
