The run did not disappoint. Easy run day, ~7 miles. Goal of the run, no faster than 8:15-8:30 miles. Weather was perfect for a fast run, low 50s barely any breeze. So much temptation, but I resisted and did low 8:20s.
A few notes from the run:
- Had my first conversation with a random runner. He was probably my height (6'3) and a few years younger than me. I heard him catching up to me from about 25 feet away, I moved over and said morning and expected him to keep going. Instead we talked about our training, both for marathon this year, goals, etc. Hopefully he stays on the morning shift, nice fellow.
- There was a pickup basketball game at the small court by Foster beach at 5:15am, not sure if they started early or were out late. Additionally, people playing golf at 5:30am seems to be becoming more normal.
- There was a police SUV right at the little building at the north part of Hollywood beach... Facing the beach. Not sure who they plan on catching there, maybe sunrise paperwork?
- Highlight "runner", if we can call the activity that, of the week.. yes week is a guy wearing a cowboy hat, tattooed all over, I think cowboy boots, and those Kangoo Jumps . I waved hello of course, he returned it. He is welcome to my morning group now. (I missed my bus stop while typing this..woops)
|Isn't some prayer usually on these photos?|
Have you seen those Kangoo Jumps in use before or even used one?
Do you feel more comfortable in a certain time of the day?
Enjoy your day!
