run

We finally made it back from Arizona yesterday. It took three days for a couple reasons. First of all, we didn’t want to come back and decided to spend one more night in AZ and went to the Arizona Biltmore Resort. You can check out this earlier post if you want to see why we were so eager to stay there.  We hung by the pool and drank too much, especially for the 3 mile run on Thursday! We spent one night in Las Vegas, Just because we could! Then we drove 11 hours to get to Boise, Idaho to visit some friends that we never see enough and had a great night with them. So, how did this effect our running schedule? Well, we ran the 3 miles Tuesday in Chandler, which was wonderful. It was sunny and warm enough to wear shorts and a tank top. Thursday we ran at the Biltmore which was in Scottsdale where the temperatures are really starting to heat up this time of the year. This was a tough run for me, as I mentioned before I had too much to drink the night prior and did not enjoy the hangover pounding in my head all the way to my feet!   But I still appreciated running in the sun. We were scheduled to run 5 miles on Saturday but had to defer that one until today because we were in the car for 8 hours yesterday, trying to get back to Seattle. So today’s run was colder, and really windy! I had a head wind at the turn around but I did manage to avoid the rain, that started later in the day. Mentally, it is tough to gear up for these colder runs when I was so spoiled for the last three weeks! I already miss Arizona but am determined to keep to the schedule, winter be damned!

Time to go rock climbing at Vertical World Redmond. Climbing at AZ on the Rocks was great, but we are really looking forward to the new routes and seeing old friends at our home gym.
