There was a beautiful moon out this morning. First I have to start with a small rant: There is so much darn road construction by my house. I literally can't turn on my main street without hitting chunks of large, broken up asphalt, huge piles of dirt, running into a million cones and half the streets are closed. It takes me twice as long to drive anywhere (because of all the detours) and when I run these portions, I have to walk over them. Done.
I really wanted to have a bit of a faster run this morning. My legs have been dragging all week and I needed a bit of a booster. So once I got through all the road crud, I really tried to pick it up. I semi-succeeded.
I'm doing my longish run tomorrow, so I can totally focus on my kids' baptism on Saturday. Then next week, it is back to bigger miles and the track.
I had to have a really hard conversation last night with a family member. As a result, I'm not very popular right now. Sigh.....
