I do not want to become an evening runner again, but with being worn out from my move and trying to get unpacked, getting up this week has been tough. So yesterday after work I headed out for about 6 miles along Richmond's Monument Avenue and its nearby streets. Talk about a different experience - while the time was different, there was also the city traffic to deal with. Today I will run in the evening, but wait until I get home. My neighborhood is much more peaceful, although I did enjoy something completely out of my realm yesterday. I'll probably do it again.
Another problem I'm starting to have is the daylight missing in the morning. It's going to get tougher and tougher to push myself out of bed when it's dark, but I really don't want to transition to evenings full time with less than two months before the marathon.
On another note, it seems the intense summer heat is finally gone. I couldn't be happier!
