After a six-month hiatus due to breaking my foot and straining my quad (not related, though in succession) I hit the road today for a test run. (Pun intended. Aren’t I witty?) I was reminded early into my jog the dangers of running with a long ponytail, as it whipped around and slapped me in my eyeball. It’s been eight years since I last ran with hair this long! Anyway, aside from the stinging in my eye, it felt fabulous to get back out on the pavement. Since I’ve been swimming and cycling/ellipticaling at the gym in the interim, I wasn’t too terribly out of shape.

Things I saw on my run today:
I went on a mini flower tour of Sacramento. So many beautiful blossoms. It is almost officially springtime, after all.
I saw other things too, of course. Like this giraffe News & Review box:
And this festive parking meter!
I threw on my CIM shirt to remind myself that I can, in fact, run. And also because it is a bright St. Patrick’s Day green.
I eventually discarded it, though, to debut my cute new sports bra. Because it is HOT out!
