the second and third days of running after getting back from germany and i’m glad the weather chilled out for a moment there. rain is a good thing, but not necessarily for the reasons the song lists haha.
anyways, yesterday i ran the lake with ariana, all the way around, but in like, 42 minutes. not too shabby- i think i ran a 37 before i left though. as if that wasn’t enough, i went to pay a visit to the xc team’s summer conditioning and got to see a bunch of people, including jessica!! she was visiting after her move from georgia to new york so it was nice to see her (: i ran another 4 miles or so with them, for a total of just over 8 miles. i can’t remember the last time i ran that far in a day, even though it was done in 2 runs 45 minutes apart or so. then off to chesapeake bagel.
and then today. today was a trip up to lake fairfax. some people might say that driving 35 minutes or so each way to run for 45 minutes isn’t worth it, but it definitely is (: lake fairfax trails > flat trails > road running. it’s just fun running there, and if it weren’t for the housing development going in along one border, or the fact one trail ultimately leads to rtc, you wouldn’t know you were in the suburbs. we saw some deer too (: after we finished, ariana said “these are the kinds of runs where you want to keep going because it’s so pretty and fun, but then don’t want to because you’re tired”
after getting home, i found i was locked out, so back to bagel. and i leave for orientation tomorrow!! so much happening. i should get back to cleaning my room though…
