Three Things Thursday

1. I  spent most of the day yesterday driving up to Crandon, Wis., for work. Six hours total, three hours each way. Sandwiched by a very short court hearing and about an hour spent writing outside at a picnic table. It was a long drive. But so pretty up in the Northwoods. And of course I was cursing myself for not having appropriate outdoor running clothes. Because running on those trails through the woods would have been absolutely amazing.

My outdoor office in Northern Wisconsin.

2. But once I pulled back into Oshkosh I knew I needed to move my legs. Sitting in a car all day? Hard. So even though it was almost 8 p.m., I headed over to the YMCA just to a log a mile or two. Because honestly that's that I was expecting to be able to do. But once I started running? Oh my gosh. It felt so good. So I went faster. And pushed myself. And finished up an amazing 3 miles.

3. I'm so looking forward to this weekend. It's the weekend I lose my relay virginity when me and four of my running friends tackle Run Away to the Bay, a 55-mile relay from Oshkosh to Green Bay. It's going to be a ton of fun and I absolutely can't wait to spend the time with these girls.
