As some of you know, I'm a music student, and I headed back to uni today after my Easter break. Excellent, new running routes!! I headed out at about 8pm on a cold, damp, dark evening and started my walk. I then realised that i had got to the foot of a very steep hill at the end of the warm up walk! I always hated even walking up this hill, but running?! It was with a fair bit of trepidation that I started my run, but oh wow! I powered up the whole hill in my three minutes!! A month ago, I'd have to stop and take a break when I was walking it! The rest of the run was great too, I love running in the rain! Had a lovely moment when I met another person out running in the rain- didn't say anything, but experienced my first 'runners wave', we both exchanged a grin which basically said- 'yep, we are mad, out running in the dark and rain but loving it! Good luck to you too!'
Altogether, a lovely evening- came home to a hot shower and dinner and a glass of wine with my best friends- lovely!
