Tried to run at the trail yesterday. but either because of the wind from Irene or the recent rains the trail was a mess. There were groves in the dirt and twigs everywhere. Really couldn't focus on running. Was worried about dodging stuff so I wouldn't hurt myself. There were some deep grooves in the trail. So after about a 1/4 mile I turned back, opted to go to the gym instead.
My goal is to be able to run the whole 5k. No matter how slow I go, I want to keep running. Haven't decided which race we are doing. But I want my family to support us and cheer us on during the run. And it will be nice to have a holiday meal with my family. It's been far too long. The last few years I have been a holiday orphan, going to 1 friends or another. I am glad I have great friends but I have definitely been missing my family lately.
