I took a page from Matt's book and created my own run this morning...the 1st annual Independence Day Wildwood 16.67K. No t-shirt but I did break in a new pair of shorts and my new Montrail's. I hadn't run on this section of Wildwood before and was using this run as a bit of a scouting trip for an upcoming 20+ miler. I fell once, but it was a clean body plant and the only damage is a slight scrape to my forearm.
It was nice to get in a longer run on the weekday. I only saw one other person right near the beginning and then didn't start seeing more people until I had about 1.6K to go until I reached my car. So I had a lot of time to think and meditate about running and life and the things that are important to me. I'd like to blog about some of those things but that will have to wait until another post.
Happy 4th of July!
P.S. Isn't it ironic that Blogger's spell check doesn't recognize blog as a word?
