Today was just beautiful. One of those days you just don't want to go back inside.
I went out for a run today planning to run at least 3.5 miles to bring my total mileage for the month to 21 miles. While out there, I ended up feeling so good and enjoying the weather so much that I decided to extend my run and explore a bit more of the waterfront path that I haven't had a chance to explore yet. It's been great having the boardwalk and piers so close to my apartment, allowing me to be near water and overlooking the grand Manhattan skyline. I only wish they were all a bit more connected. Sometimes you have to run up the street to get to the next section. Anyway, this month I had already run more miles than I have since October, and I knew I'd be close to breaking my record for September as well. So I just kept going until I ended up at 4.5 miles. It was my first 4+ miler since October. Unfortunately I ended up just .2 miles from breaking my September goal.
But that's ok. I feel really happy that I've been getting back into the running habit!
