We arrived Sunday evening, driving headfirst into the lingering remnants of Fay. Good girl that she was, she left as soon as we arrived. Lucky us!
Monday morning, Miss J had an early meeting, so after waking and making her a wonderfully gourmet protein shake and getting her out the door, I enjoyed a shake as well and reviewed my maps. Then I pulled on my running clothes and eased myself out the door. (I ran a 5K on Saturday and then spent two straight days in the car driving. Poor Jessica had run a half-marathon and then driven for two straight days!! Needless to say, we were achy-breaky.) The weather was decent, not too hot, and fairly overcast. I set off in what I thought was the correct direction only to four blocks later decide that I was absolutely going the WRONG way. Hrm. I return to the apartment, realign myself, and start off again. Except this time, four blocks into the journey that direction I find myself at the corner of a CEMETARY that I am 100% totally positive I never saw on either of my maps!! I return to the apartment for the second time with the express intent to have a little discussion with the map. We needed to be much better friends. I finally determined where I had gone wrong and headed out once again. And it was amazing how quick and easy the trip was once I got it right! :) I made it to the park, the destination of choice, ran for a while, and then headed home, still running. I was so juiced up that I ran past our street! I was feeling good. The running was a bit dodgy, what with the sore and tired muscles that were NOT in the mood to be challenged. But in the end it was great!
