For some reason I like running out in the elements. Yes it slows you down, but at the same time, makes you feel hardcore. I ran a 5-mile figure eight loop twice, around the Great Meadows National Wildlife Refuge in Concord, MA. All trails save for one small stretch of road. Parking lot at the 'cross over' part of the figure eight, with a restroom. I recommend it :-) Had a pair of shoes in the car for emergency shoe changing options but ran in the new trail shoes with orthotics without issues. Think I'm ready for the half on Saturday. Now off to date night at Craigie's on Main with my husband who's been a rockstar today cleaning the house and letting me run.

    Wow, you've jumped right back in w/ no problems- you're a rockstar, along w/ your husband. Funny you mention him, since a lot of us on here have been discussing lack of support at home (see Karen A.'s thread) :-)

    I know - I really can't complain. Then again, we met while we were out mountainbiking so he sort of knew what he was getting into? He's going to bargain for some woodworking time in the basement now.... :-D

    Have fun on date night, you have earned it. My husband pushes me out the door!! I will never forget one day I was cranky and his response after about 1/2 an hour was "will you for a run already"!!! I was not pleased but he was right and I laced up, came back in a better mood :)

    Great run, Anna!! I love that you say running in the elements makes you feel hardcore because that is exactly how I've always looked at it. I love getting looks from people in cars when it's pouring rain, snowing, hailing, or a million degrees and I just kinda smile at em and think, "Yeah, I'm pretty much hardcore".
    Have a fun date night :D
