Beautiful Day

It is just beautiful here in Pennsylvania today...MBM could not join me a the track for a run this morning(and he won't let me go alone), so, I decided to take my show on the road. We live in a growing rural community...narrow winding country roads and developments. A beautiful place to run. But with everything there are Pros and Cons... PRO... ...beautiful country side views along those country roads ...beautiful homes and gorgeous landscaping ...fresh country air ...feeling of safety ...neighbors, wave as you go by makes you feel good CON... ...road kill accompanied by voltures snacking (BTW they don't move when they see you coming) ...landscapers, between the mowing and staring, UGH! ...barn smells ...narrowly being run down by a mini van on the road and worse...knowing who it was! ...trash day, you learn a lot about your neighbors by what is in there recycling. I am not judging, just an observation! Have a great weekend!

I LOVE to run on country roads too! Good luck with your first 5K (meant to comment on your last post!) The miles just fly by when you are running on the roads! Although I'm right there with you on the 1) almost getting run over by drivers that dont pay attention and 2) road kill. when I was marathon training I saw more roadkill then I ever thought possible!
