With temperatures that reached at least 61 degrees on Saturday, it was a beautiful day for a run, and I spent the morning on a long run with my friend Veronica.
I ran 12 miles, my first beyond-10-mile run of marathon training for the Shamrock Marathon on March 20. Next weekend, I have a 15-miler on the schedule.
I’m not sure if it reached 61 degrees during our run, but either way, I was very comfortable in shorts and I’m sure I could have also worn a short-sleeved shirt, even though I was in a long-sleeved tech shirt.
It was nice for me to get a change of scenery, and we ran in Tyaskin and Bivalve in western Wicomico County, going through the Cedar Hill Marina and Park and getting a couple water views. Something to keep in mind if you’re running at or around Cedar Hill in the winter is that the bathroom is closed, which I found out on the run.
After the run, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast of waffles with blueberries and syrup, eggs, bacon and fruit, made by Veronica’s husband, Mark.
The non-wintery day made for perfect long run conditions. I didn’t even experience any shin pain, which I am really happy about, since I did have some shin pain on a recent run. I’m about to head out for another run now.
It’s 66 degrees right now. Sixty. Six. Degrees.
It is also Jan. 10.
Enjoy your run if you get out there today!
