I Wear an Ipod When I Run, So People Know I’m Excercising

I’ve mentioned before that I’m not exactly a sprint runner.  20 minute miles are pretty average for me, and at a 15 minute mile, I feel like I’m FLYING.  About a week ago, a little old lady pulled her car over while I was running jogging ...ahem… putting one foot in front of the other with a slight bounce in my step… to ask if I was okay.  At that point, she must have noticed the ipod because she said: “OH!  You’re exercising!” and gave a little laugh before driving off.  It makes me wonder what I must have looked like, to make her think I was in trouble.  Never mind, I don’t think I want to know.  :)

On an AWESOME note, Manuela and I did our 6.2 miles in an hour and 30 minutes today, which is about 20 minutes faster than the last time I ran it!  I had to walk on a few of the hilly spots, but I’m THRILLED with that time!!! Now I KNOW that I can do the Med Center 10k in the allotted amount of time, and that feels INCREDIBLE.
