What a difference a day makes!

I don't know whether to chalk it up to the weather or my commitment to keeping a clear mind, but yesterday's run was the best I've ever done since I started this whole fitness pursuit. I ran 6 miles easily (though thanks to the Seattle area hills there was even some hiking!) and could have kept going for another hour. I reached that elusive runner's high I've heard so much about.

That will give me the courage to face Sunday's 10K. So was it the lack of humidity? The crisp fall-like breeze that always gives me energy? The decision to turn off the brain and just enjoy the run? Here's hoping more runs go like this.


  1. Thanks for passing along your blog...I will have to read it when I am not at wait, I should read it when I'm at work!!!

    It was good to see you :)

  2. Go Sarah! You continue to be an inspiration to me. Runner's high, 10K, "could have kept going for another hour:" You're a runner.
