I wrote this a few weeks back, at the end of a long day that ended up with me feeling overwhelmed and anti-social. I’m an introvert in that I draw energy from being alone or in small groups. I can get through a regular work day, but if I have to add another group social obligation after that, I end up feeling pretty drained. It usually takes a strong dose of solo outdoor time to recover.
To all of my blog readers:
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas
filled with the people
that mean the most to you,
that remind you of childhood…
and the peace
that comes from within.
I ran in the Manitoba Marathon today, as part of a 5-person relay team, running the full 26 mile course. I ran Leg 5, which was 5.75 miles. It took me one hour, and my average pace per mile was 10:33. I was pretty pleased with that, as lately, I’ve been running closer to 12 minute miles. Our team name was “Woot! Woot!” and it sounds like we all had a pretty good run. All told, it took us 4 1/2 hours and we finished 266 out of the 392 teams. It was a gorgeous day for running, sunny but breezy and good cloud cover as the day got hotter.
