A Fantastic Run Where I Felt Like I Didn’t Have Legs – I Was Flying!

Tonight’s run was SO MUCH BETTER than last night! It was one of those runs where everything just feels right.

Me running at night

Somewhere along the way I was in one of my standard post-race daydream/fantasies where a reporter asks me:

“So Kristina, how is it that you ran SO fast today? You’re the fastest in the whole world!”

“Well, I think it’s because I felt like I didn’t have legs most of the race. It literally felt like I was flying down the course.”

That’s really how I felt. My legs were pretty much a non-factor until the very end when the back of my right knee felt a little sore.

Aren’t runs where you feel like you’re just gliding or flying along THE BEST?!! They make me so happy.

Cecil went on his own little running adventure tonight. When I opened the door to my apartment he came running out the door and made it halfway down the hallway:


But then he got scared and came running back home:


I bet he’s been working up the courage to go out the front door for a long time now. He’s not a very brave cat. You might say he’s a scaredy-cat!

I love him … and I also wish our condo association would replace the carpet in our hallway. We live on the third floor and they put in this really nice tile on the first floor but I guess we’re chop liver up here!

Oh well.

How is your week going? Only two days until the weekend!

What funny/weird things has your pet down this week?

    Those are the best runs!! I love when my legs don’t even seem to exist!

    Hilarious escaping kitty…Archie sometimes flies to the door when we open it, but just so he can land on us. If he ever escaped, I might die!
