Running in ATL

Hey friends! Yes I know, I need to blog about Wasatch Back, it'll happen I promise. But here's my first blog post from ATL.

I went running this morning. I was all sorts of nervous because a) it's a new place b) wasn't sure if my plotted run was in a "safer" area and c) i had to run by myself. I took my trusty BB and headed out on my first run.

Lori vs. Humdity, take one.

First, off. It feels AWESOME to run at sea level. Holy my lungs loved me. The 4 miles I ran felt like I'd ran 1. Seriously. That good. But the humidity, oh my, it kicked my trash. I don't generally sweat much but by about mile 2 I had sweat dripping in my eyes. By the time I was done with the run I looked like I'd run through the sprinklers. My A/C never felt sooooo good.

Here are some pics from my fabulous first run:

Me post workout with sweaty wet hair. but I was psyched!
(like that my front yard is a forest, too?)
here's to more ATL adventures!

So beautiful!! I want that last house! Maybe we can have a winter home there... Hey if running feels easier there, you'd have me as a partner ;)

Yeah for running! I can't wait to get back into it. Maybe I should go running in ATL for my first job so as to bring my lungs naturally back into it. I am loving all the house pictures you have posted here and on your blog - they are just my style! **sigh**

Yay for running at sea level! It looks like it was a gorgeous run, and I'm glad that you were safe.

It looks so nice!! One day I want to try running at sea level just to see how long I can go.
