You guys totally missed out.

It was our favorite type of running weather this morning. Well at first at least. It was a gorgeous cool morning. The mountains were covered in clouds from time to time and everything was SUPER green. Oh it was sooo beautiful. Then add to that the temperature was perfect for running! I loved it. Even though I was soaking from the rain by the end, it felt soooo good. Well I was solo today (which btw is going to be the norm WAY too soon) and knew I needed to get 6 in. Being a gluten for punishment I decided to run the WRC 10k course. Like Lor mentioned the Ragnar Relay is coming up soon and so hills and I must become friends. Hence choosing a super hilly course. I started out feeling strong. Since getting super sick a couple of weeks ago, I haven't really run much, so this was my first long run in a while and I was excited that I felt so good. Well about 2 miles in the nausea set in. Awesome. Only 4 more miles and 5 million hills left. Fun. For. Me. I totally missed you guys helping push me along. It really is amazing how much having someone to run with helps. I am beginning to realize how imperative it's going to be for me to find someone to run with once Lor leaves. Along that note though I kept telling my body that if this were a race and there were people around I would be able to keep running so I just kept pushing. By the time I finished I really felt sick to my stomach, but I was pleased with myself because I had done it, done it in a decent time, and had run 90% of the hills! Go team! So overall it was a good run, it just made me miss you guys!

Okay, you've convinced me, I think I am going to try and get my knees back into running condition. Advil here I come (for the first little while :) I miss running in weather like we had Saturday morning.
