Can't say I really have a goal. I'm just running because it's something to do. I think eventually I'd like to enter some trail races. Probably. :D

Well, I'm back. I don't remember right now exactly when my run streak ended. It was about a month ago, six weeks tops. A bunch of stuff happened - I won't get into it here - but I lost motivation to run just about overnight.
The fact that it's been 80°F or more most days didn't help.
I'm not super pleased with this time - 9:18 pace or so - but after (let's call it five weeks) time off it's not too bad. And frankly it felt pretty good to be out, listening to music, and running. This run included the stupid hill in my neighborhood too or it would have been about 9:00, probably.
So I'm pleased. I'm more pleased that I'm out. I think - in combination with losing my main motivator - running a mile a day minimum was stupid in the end. It sapped the remaining motivation I had, and given both, I just didn't want to do it.
Why start now again? Because, though I don't particularly enjoy running, it's the lesser of the evils, and my belt was a teeny tiny bit tighter than it was five weeks ago. Not enough to go to the next largest loop, but noticeable.
So I'm back. I'm kind of curious, too, how many of my friends are still on here and running.
P.S. I'd forgotten how depressingly small the calorie totals were. :P
