#1: It must be safe, as in free of snakes, stalkers, dark alleys, rabid animals, narrow roads, and drivers with a death wish.
#2: It must be a distance long enough to make me feel really good when I'm finished, but short enough that I can motivate myself to get off the couch.
#3: It must have lots of good things to look at!
All geared up in a free giveaway t-shirt from Jim Carey's movie "Yes Man" which came out in 2008 (I never saw it but apparently feel the need to keep advertising it on myself... I like free stuff), a Brooks fleece from my grandmother and my secret weapon...
A monkey silly band that my niece Samantha gave me during the Philly Marathon. I think it's good luck.
I drove over to my mother's house and hit the road. My legs felt light and running felt easy... a nice result of a couple days of rest and recovery from the marathon. The only problem was that when I tried to clip my iPod to my pants it kept pulling my pants down! (I decided to spare you a picture of that.)
My run takes me through the little town of Wayne, with a festive Christmas tree...
Some very cute little stores...
And some beautiful homes...
One of my favorite churches. Apparently I love red doors!
I finished my run in an hour and walked a mile around my old neighborhood to cool down. I'd love to tell you I stretched too, but well, that would be a lie!
Have a great day!
