This morning I set off on my run. As usual, I walked the first mile and ran the second. Once again, there was a 10 in front of fully ran mile. This time it was 10:24!! I was toast after that mile and was very happy to go back to run/walk intervals where there was a much familiar 13 in front of most of my miles. But still it gives me hope that with actual training and focus I may actually get faster.
I continued for the rest of my run, admiring the fall foliage and realized I have come full circle. I have now experienced all the seasons. While my time here hasn’t been quite what I expected, living across from Forest Park has been a bright spot. I have been able to come here and enjoy the beauty – the green, the spring blossoms, the summer blooms, the leaves changing colors, and the snow blanketing the ground.
