Running

You guys, I totally went running this morning. Well, jogging and walking. Close enough. My fake running will henceforth be referred to as "running" despite how very far from the truth this may be.

Turns out there are four greenways in this county! I went to the Riverside Greenway, which a 1.2 mile loop. I walked and jogged and walked and jogged and I think in the end I did about half and half, which is pretty cool. The trail is pretty okay. It's all paved, which was important to me. There are a flock of Canadian geese living there right now. They were meandering around the parking lot and I had to maneuver around those stubborn birds while they glared at this intruder. They didn't bother me at all, though. I stuck my key into my sports bra and headed off. There's a decent amount of geese shit, but it's easy to avoid. I think it took me about 20 minutes. It's a great starter location while I build up my distance. On days that I want to go further, it's short enough that it's simple to double. On Saturdays, I am thinking of joining up with a couple redditors at one of the larger greenways. And, okay, okay, I'll do at least one 5k this year.

Because, you know, running this morning wasn't awful. I probably could've kept on running. So, despite what my shirt says, maybe it's not that bad.
