Three days ago I was in a pretty good mood and wanted to do a 6+ mile route to try to trim off the week at about 30 miles.
But then I got stung by yellow jackets and it didn't happen. Today I had a couple errands to do taking care of my geocaches, so I decided to combine them into one trick, using my wife's great Piedmont Park route.
I've been reading the book Born to Run about ultramarathoners and it's really inspired me to think about how I run and to run how I feel like it. I've even thought about what it would be like to run in those shoes designed to be like barefoot runners.
Today I really felt like I was running for fun, carrying various geocache containers to three cache sites and having a good time. It was hot but I felt like I had a pretty good focus. I drank some water at the Piedmont Park fountain before the bowl at about 6 miles.
