I ended up having to work late AGAIN last night, leaving me too exhausted to run. I was so bummed last night :( It was also POURING DOWN RAIN when I was leaving work, so I went and bought this cute little hat to run in:
The Nike Dri-FIT Feather Light Womens Cap in a new colorway for holiday 2009 features mesh insets for maximum comfort, style, and function and stealth grey underbill reduces glare. Other details include a Dri-FIT terry sweatband, contrast sandwich piping on bill, and quick-adjust closure. Center front embroidered Swoosh design trademark. Construction:
I usually HATE to wear hats or things on my head, but I figured it was better than getting rain in my eyes. I cant wait to test it out. Plus, it was 50% off at Nordstrom! I was able to get this little gem for $12 instead of $20!
Needless to say, I was grumpy this morning because I didn't get a run in for 3 days. That is just way too long! I decided to skip sitting at my cube for lunch and run instead:
Running near the Space Needle
Seattle skyline...no, it doesn't rain ALL the time :)
Beautiful Puget Sound
Yep, that's SUN on my face!
I was tired through the run, but boy do I feel great afterwards! 5.8 miles is just what I needed. I will definitely try to get more runs in halfway through the day (if there is time). I was surprised to see how many people were out there at the same time. I saw quite a few Seattle Half Marathon shirts :)
I also realized how much I love Seattle. It was a balmy 57 degrees when I was out there! The sun actually felt warm, and I even noticed a few trees had buds on them. This has been such a mild winter...great for running! I love the snow, but the dry and 50 degree or more weather has been AWESOME. Apparently January 2010 was 7 degrees warmer than normal...we set a record! You also cant beat the views while running.
I might have to go for round 2 tonight!!
