Some runs are good, some bad, and some downright ugly. Some runs are all three. Today was all three. I started off at 5am into my neighborhood feeling very sore from weight lifting yesterday. Plus, there is so much smoke in the air from the fires in Colorado that the air is dry and unpleasant to breath. I just felt like a lump. I thought about cutting my run short, but decided that would be, as Katherine would say, "lame sauce." So I put in my ear buds and let Will I Am motivate me to the half way mark. Once I hit half way, not only was it downhill, but my spirits were lifted and I started feeling fantastic. It always amazes me how some runs can start out so crappy and end so wonderfully. Another day, another run owned!
