running in Portland
(standing in the OMSI parking lot, looking at the West side)
Took a vacation day - just have class. Woke up late but still decided to run the Water Front Loop (3 miles, Hawthorne Bridge to Steel Bridge). Parked at OMSI and took off. I haven't ran in so, so long. I guess the excuses I use are I don't have a good sports bra (and any lady with Ds or bigger sincerely knows this is not a joke), I'd rather just do the stair machine (but I end up not doing the stair machine). No excuses this morning. After rafting this weekend and feeling so self conscious about my body, not running was not an option.
I did 3 miles in 34 minutes. Ideally, I want my jogging mile to be between 8-9 minutes. Gotta start somewhere :)
