Some people (actually a lot of people) I know look for any excuse not to exercise. And as exercise goes, running is not at the top of their list. I know I have talked (written, typed, blogged, whatever) about this before but it still blows my mind.
All I could think of all day was getting out for a run. I worked until 4:00 today and then rushed home, changed into running clothes, tossed my son into the car and drove out to the Alameda Creek Trail for a "however far I could get before it got too dark" kind of run. This is a little of what I didn't miss out on this evening:
The ground was nice and soft. The air was crisp and cool. Boomer could not be much happier with these perfect running conditions. I ran three miles and he ran about eight!
