I started out the morning with a fantastic run. I had planned to do laps at the nearby high school track, but it was locked. I considered climbing the fence, but then remembered I will eventually apply for the bar exam and don’t want to have to explain a trespassing charge. So, I changed my route and decided to run out for 25 minutes and then turn around and come back.
I wound up running around 5 miles and it felt great! The sun was out, but it wasn’t too hot. It was the perfect temperature to work up a good sweat while enjoying the changing colors of the leaves. I hadn’t gone for many outdoor runs lately, but I was pleasantly surprised to see my snot-blowing technique had not waned. My knees started to hurt and I began to feel a few blisters on the hill coming back home. Otherwise, I would have enjoyed running a bit longer.
