I’m a decathlete!

12 Apr

That’s what you call someone who’s walked or ran ten miles, right?  No?

Oh well, I did really walk ten miles today.  I’m trying to up my mileage so that I’m ready for the Flying Pig.  So far I think I’m up to 26 miles for this week…I think I’m doing alright. 

Today was a great day for a 10 mile walk.  Just look at the sights!

I went to First Landing State Park and did the Cape Henry Trail, for a total of ten miles.  It was the perfect day, if not a little windy.  The high today is supposed to be 59 and I think it was around 55 when I was walking.  That’s comfortable, right?  Some dude thought that he was in the freaking tropics and was taking a leisurely stroll with no shirt on!

It was not warm enough for that!  How was he not freezing??

In making friends wherever I go news;  I really made a runner mad today.  She was running right at me, on the wrong side.  If you run, walk, bike…a lot you know there are certain rules to follow and that you stay on a certain side of the trail or path coming and going.  She was on the wrong side. 

I was feeling stubborn and in my groove so I wasn’t moving.  She got closer and closer and had to swerve at the last minute.  Throwing her hands up in the air and giving me a nice scoff on her way past.

Sorry…you were on the wrong side. 

Happy Thursday!
