Nike decided to throw a T-Shirt Challenge, requiring all challengers to run at least one mile on three consecutive days. So, I decided to wedge a quick run in this morning between my regularly scheduled OHR runs. I felt pretty good when I left the house at about 5:40, so I set the iPod for a 5K run and set off. 28:23 later, I had set a new PB!
I have a new ritual. Every time I get back from a run and strip off my sweaty, stinky running clothes, I pull a fresh pair of shorts and shirt out of the drawer and lay them out on top of the dresser for the next run. My little way of telling myself that, yes, today’s run is one little victory, but in a day or two I start all over again. I need more running clothes.
