Running Photographer = not to be confused with Running Zack.
If you don’t get the “Saved By The Bell” reference, I’m disappointed.
I was happy to be in bed by 10 pm last night. I was not happy to wake up at 11:30 and not be able to fall back into a solid sleep. Apparently my cough is gone but the germs have invaded my nose. I was battling a super stuffy nose all night and couldn’t breathe.
Must-do today: buy cold medicine.
I woke up at 6 this morning and debated whether or not I should run. I got up to go to the bathroom and as soon as I stood up, my nose “drained” and I could breathe again. Maybe I just need to find a way to sleep standing up!
I was pumped that it was already in the mid-60s when I woke up, so I threw on capri pants and a T-shirt and headed for Central Park. I’m working from home this morning while I wait for Time Warner to come install my cable and Internet (you bet I’m blogging from stolen wireless right now — oops), which means I had plenty of time to get a decent run in.
The rest of this post will mainly be photos. I ran 7 miles in the park, which included a lower loop and a loop around the Bridle Path.
The sky was a little scary looking, but the rain held out for the duration of my run.
I had been wanting to run on the Bridle Path for so long, and today I finally ventured onto it. I was so happy I did. The packed dirt is gentle to run on and it was nice to get a change of scenery.
The Bridle Path was less crowded than the main road in the park and far wider than the Reservoir. Love!
My run definitely look longer than I had anticipated due to lots of photo stops and a bathroom stop. But I was so happy to spend my morning in the park and wish I could have kept running.
Now I’m home waiting for Time Warner. Here’s hoping my “8–11 am window” means the technician will be here closer to 8 than to 11!
Thank you all for your feedback about the self hosting dilemma. I’m excited to dig into all of the information everyone has offered up and to eventually set up a new home at aliontherunblog.com. All in due time…
Have a great day!
