10 things in 6 kms - photo blog

Sunday, September 30, 2012

I'm visiting the in-laws with the mini-fam this weekend so I had to do my last LSD run before my next HM in the middle of nowhere. Thankfully, that meant a couple of things: everything was new and traffic was not a problem.
My grateful list for today is:
1. A comfortable bed. The in-laws recently upgraded the mattress on the hide-a-bed. *sigh*

2. A good night's sleep. See above. (except for a couple interruptions from Roo, I had a lovely 8 or 9 hours of sleep last night)

3. Coffee. Seriously, can anything perk you up in the morning like a nice, fresh, steaming cup of java?

4. Country roads. I felt really isolated on my run today and, for a change, it was wonderful. Not sure I could do more than 6k by myself but ....

5. A good book. My favourites are written by Jean M. Auel, James Patterson, Diana Gibaldon

6. A great run.

7. Sunshine. It is SO beautiful outside today.

8. Baby smiles. Especially when accompanied by giggles.

9. Adoring fans. I'll post some pics of mine in a sec.

10. Cool breezes. When it's warm outside, and you're out for a run, it's a very welcome thing.

And now the pictures I promised.
This is just as I left the house:
The first wind in the road:
Just a little of what I saw along the way:
My toughest decision today:
I chose to head off to the left and was greeted by this "lovely" hill:
This is where I turned around: The view from the top of the hill: This sign seemed appropriate for this week's BLC20 challenge: Another beautiful view:
My adoring fans emoticon I can see the finish line:
More fans. These ones belong to the in-laws. The brown one with the white & black snout is Emily's horse, Belle.

What my mini-fam does while I'm out running:

    So after all that running, when you come home and find everyone passed out....don't you just want to wake them up and get them moving? LOL I would! And I wouldn't be gentle about it. LOL

    Looks like a beautiful spot for a run. Roo looks so tall all streatched out. Is that for real?

    The sign says "Winding Road Next 2 kms".

    Oh, I couldn't read the top line of the sign, just the lower part that said "Next 2 KM's". But I'm curious as to what it said.

    I love this Penny. Your blog from yesterday has rippled outwards. I have written one also, and have read a couple more. It was such a great idea, and I'm happy you continued it today.

    Your run looked fabulous! See you soon.
