Fresh air

The wind changed direction after Friday, keeping the smoky air away. Yesterday was a really nice day, and I took Molly out with me in the morning. Apparently 57 degrees with sun is too warm, because she got tired again. At one point, she stopped and I thought she was going to "stop" but she just wanted to roll around in the grass. She was also trying to do "drive-by" weed eating. What a weird puppy.

I was going to just treadmill, but then I found my MP3 player wasn't charged and I didn't want to just watch TV. So I headed outside to brave the wind ... and it was rough. The first half was all in the wind, and then I got a 2.5 mile reprieve. The last mile had some wind, but it wasn't too bad until the very last part when I almost got knocked over. But overall - a very good run for me! I felt a lot more like myself today, for the first time in a really long while.

I didn't take Molly with me because I wanted to see how I would do on a long run without dragging along a 40-pound weight, and because she's not so much a fan of wind. I figured I would take her out for a walk or some Frisbee when I got back, but I didn't feel like walking in the wind and it was too windy for Frisbee. Luckily, I picked up some rubber balls at Target yesterday, so we played soccer instead. That was a lot of fun.

When I picked up my Clomid on Tuesday (from a very visibly pregnant pharmacist, nonetheless) I had some time to kill so I wandered around Target. I found that they had new running shorts in, so I picked up a pair. I really like them! The drawstring is on the outside, which is a little different. I also picked up a running skirt ... I've been semi-interested in them for awhile, but the $40+ price tags have been a strong deterrent. Target's version is only $19.99, so that's not too bad. I haven't tried it out yet, though.
