Sunday came and went. A drove back to her dorm room 200 miles away after we had Chipotle for dinner. I had a soft taco and chips. My body was not happy with all the salt, but I managed to sneak a 1/2 mile run in before the gym closed.
It was 28 degrees outside and I was grateful to live so close to a gym with an indoor track.
The best part of this run was still having time to go into the sauna for 5 minutes after running. It felt so good on my muscles.
After the last couple of runs that I did after dinner, I decided that I wanted to run before dinner and as late as possible. I theorized this would work.

I thought it would be fun to walk run crawl trot the half marathon at the same time. And I thought I would do my personal work of self appreciation to help me through this half marathon 1/2 miler at a time. Today was my third half miler that I have documented .
