I started out thinking I was only going to do my noraml running route, which is about 4.5 miles. But as I neared home, I realized that I was enjoying my run so I decided to keep on going and aim for a 10k distance.
I hit the 8k close to my driveway and thought I'd head down toward the lake and turn around when my nike+ announced I went 9k. Well, it turned out that I went all the way down to the lake. Notice I said "down", almost 1 mile downhill. That meant that I had to go almost 1 mile uphill on the turn around.
I am so pleased with my progress -- I was able to run all the way back up that road.
It was such a pretty run too. The leaves are just starting to turn. The best thing is now I have running route for a 10k. Oh, my finishing time - 1:06'57 -- my best time so far.
