When I left the office, it felt bone chilling cold for some reason, but swore that it was in the high 40s. Neither Rich nor I believed it. Anyway, we got together after work to run an easy 10 miles from his office. I was trying to get my miles in and he is just along for the ride. I could tell his mind is already on the plane to Chile for his 150 Mile endurance race this week. He will be leaving this Wednesday and the race is scheduled to start this Sunday. I am freakin' jealous. We decided to run from his office straight to the bottom of Rainbow Mountain. On the way back, we would hit the Indian Creek Greenway for a short Out & Back to make up the mileage required for today. That way, we would utilize the remaining daylight while on the road and run the greenway in the dark. Without traffic, there really is no need for light on an asphalt trail. We kept an easy pace and it took me a while to warm up. Once we returned from Rainbow Mountain and hit the greenway, we decided to pick up the pace for a little fun. It was at this point that I also had to correct my assumption that there would not be any traffic on the greenway. While there was no car traffic, we counted 3 rabbits and even a deer crossing the greenway about 20 yards in front of us. I guess they figured that humans had left the greenway for the day and that it was now theirs. These encounters definitely made the run more enjoyable. Tomorrow, my training schedule calls for another hill workout, oh joy. Didn't I just do that? Oh wait, that was two weeks ago.
